Sorry to be a bit OT:

I was able to get the Blackdown 32-bit java emulation to work on my  
amd64 system. As for Flash I can run the 32-bit binary version of  
Firefox if I need Flash to work (rare).

Not true 64-bit solutions, but they do work transparently to the user.

This is on a Gentoo box, don't know anything about FC4,
