VMware 64-bit guest in 32-bit host

i’m trying to install a 64-bit guest OS (fedora core 11) in a 32-bit host OS in vmware server and the fedora kernel kept complaining that the CPU was not 64-bit capable. vmware documentation says that 64-bit guests will install just fine on 32-bit hosts.

it turns out that after a BIOS upgrade, an option for virtualization was exposed. once the virtualization option was enabled, i was able to install fedora just fine.
