I did some tests to run Mandriva distro inside UML and during my test I did
notice it is impossible to run 32bits inside a 64bits kernel UML. The problem
is not related to the host system and as solution it possible to run a 32bits
kernel on a 64bits host system.
However, more and more distribution come with a biarch support, the only
32bits application usually mandatory on linux system is lilo or grub,
completly useless with UML, but this is problematic in some case.
I never notice in FAQ or documentation this limitation. Is this normal ? Is
there any plan to remove this limitation ? Is there a technical problem to
fix this denying to fix this ?

(Sorry for the repost, I didn't reply to all the first time.)
It's not a problem per se, just a feature that was never implemented
in 64-bit UML. Jeff has said he's had this on his "to do" list for
