I have not read anything definitive about installing Feisty amd64 over Edgy !386. However I'm wondering if it can be done successfully?

I have a large primary harddrive where I run Edgy amd64, and then I have a secondary drive that I have Edgy !386 with numerous installed packages (this is my "sandbox" -- test drive). This secondary drive is where I would like to install Feisty amd64 on Edgy so that the settings, data and packages would be preserved as much as possible. I would like to think that this type of installation can (and should) be able to be done -- but I tend to read more bad stories then successful installations. Let me know your experience (pros and cons).

On the partition I'm using now, I've recently installed Sabayon (amd64 version) and Feisty H2 32-bit. I don't worry about it because the installer formats the root partition.
