I have run various 32-bit and 64-bit guests on VMware's ESX Server  
(VI3). The latest update (about 3 weeks old) supports this as does  
the free VMware Server (I think). ESX Server is bulletproof and the 2  
guest OSs operated seamlessly. I have used Centos 4.x as a host for  
VMware Server without issue on both an hp DL380 as well as a  
homebuilt clone system. Not sure about Fedora, though.
