True, but for DRBL you don't need a high-end server.  It's just serving
NFS shares.  So you could conceivably run a 32-bit DRBL server and do
just fine.

Unless, that is, you were trying to run DRBL and LTSP on the
same server.  In that case, you have conflicting requirements (32 bit
for DRBL, 64 bit and loads of RAM for LTSP).
