Linux kernel - running i686 on 64-bit processors

We have had to revert some 64-bit Debian machines to i686 because of some proprietary software that we rely on :( , but I found that:

Linux myetchmachine 2.6.17-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Sep 13 16:34:10 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
is smart enough to split the dual 64-bit processors into quad 32-bit processors :) Very cool!!
