A common pitfall of the OpenVZ installation

A very very common error I see people make when installing OpenVZ on a 64 bit system is that they will assume the kernel used is a 64 bit kernel. By default OpenVZ does NOT install a 64 bit kernel, but rather a 32 bit one. If the wrong kernel is installed this will cause the machine to drop a kernel panic. This is mentioned in the documentation, however this is an issue I have seen clients have repeatedly.
