The standard i686 Crux ISO or the i586 ISO should work fine on a 64-bit 
machine.  You won't be taking advantage of the additional capabilities, 
but it will work.  I can't really speculate on the benefits to be gained 
from actually using software compiled on an amd64 toolchain, but I have 
been told that certain apps, like databases, benefit more than others.
