    In the configure step (make config, make xconfig, make gconfig...) set the processor family to a 32 bit compatible CPU.
    There is no difference betwen 64 bit kernels and 32 bit ones... that's only a matter about compiling, the source code is the same.

    Note: If you are working with a 64 bit distribution and you recompile your kernel to be 32 bit compliant, you will break your system because your libraries and tools are compiled for 64 bit.

    Best regards
