No. The only thing you can do is to set root-path for each host with 
host declarations in your dhcpd.conf. This is useful if you know the mac 
of each computer and that for example certain macs correspond to 64bit 
systems while others to 32bit.

However, in the installer you can choose the version to install if you 
want a different.
