It's not really clear what you're asking here. In any case, FreeBSD i386 runs 
just fine on amd64 hardware, you just won't have the amd64 specific things 
turned on -- only really relevant if you have lots of memory, do scientific 
computing, or run big databases (in which case recent threads suggest that 
it's faster to run i386 anyway).
