I know that is must be possible, 64bit Linux's run 32bit wine apps.

Gentoo Linux and OpenSuse amd64 editions, work with wine
I use one of these two to Play World of Warcraft on my notebook.

I Would use FreeBSD but suspend resume on i386 has issues, and
no 64bit nvidia, so I am stuck with Linux on my Laptop for the moment.
