[nSLUG] VirtualBox running a 64 Bit Host

Hello everyone

I'm currently trying to run Windows Vista 64 Bit in Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64  
using VirtualBox. I was just wondering if anyone knows if VirtualBox is  
able to emulate a 64bit CPU. A quick google search reviled that VirtualBox  
is capable of running a 64bit guest OS under a 32 bit host OS, but when I  
try to load vista, I get an error stating that my CPU has changed to a 32  
bit CPU. I would much rather run Vista using a virtual machine than always  
rebooting. Any suggestions?
