32 bit applications cannot run on ia64

Description of problem:
On RHEL 2.1, 32 bit applications were supported out of the box.
This does not seem to be the same for RHEL 3.0. There are no
instructions available on how to achieve this.
Can you please advise.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install e.g. acrobat
2. Fails to run.
Expected Results: Works on RHEL 2.1
What specific problems are you seeing?
As stated in the bug report:
No 32bit apps can be run (no libs available)
No instructions on how to achieve this can be found.
When I tried to install the rpms from the compat libs iso which we
were given (See issue tracker #Issue 44130), I get file conflicts
which I am reluctant to force or use --replacefiles on.
On RHEL2.1 there was package that was called x86-compat or something
along those lines and it had all these libs that we needed to run
How do I achieve the same level of compatibility on the RHEL3
Jay: have you seen conflict issues with the compat libs isos?
I would like to know if someone is looking into this. We still have
no solution to get the 32bit compat libs installed w/o problems.
All of the 32-bit compat packages are included in the RHEL3-U3 beta
code which is currently available. Are you still seeing conflicts
with that code? Also, what architecture are you installing on? The
bug indicates IA64, but I thought you folks were putting the EM64T
stuff through its paces?

We received links to both the ia64 and em64t compat lib isos, so we
tried both on their respective platforms. We have 32bit compat working
now on the em64t, but not on the ia64. The conflicts tend to be mainly
for files residing in /usr/share and /etc, I have no specific examples
Putting in needinfo; need specific examples of conflicts.
