ia32 kernel on amd64 box?

Does anyone know if an ia32 kernel (specifically the one that comes with
Red Hat 7.2) will work on an SMP AMD Opteron machine?
I know someone will want to know why I would want to, so here is the
explanation. I want to evaluate the opteron port of Linux at work. Buying
the Opteron machine is less risky if I can fall back to 32 bit Linux
if the 64 bit port does not work well. This is particularly true since
the 64 bit servers do not seem to cost much more than similar Pentium
