Virtual Machines: 64-bit guest on 32-bit host

I have been installing some Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSUSE vms in preparation for testing the accessibility/UIAutomation stuff. I wanted to prepare some 64-bit VMs on my ThinkPad T61 Centrino Duo laptop (64-bit hardware) with 32-bit openSUSE installed.

I figured it would be a problem since I had 64-bit hardware. It was once I figured out that the Intel(R) Virtualization Technology--that is needed to do it--is disabled in the BIOS by default. I enabled the setting under Config -> CPU, and voilà!
