Can I use a 64bit guest image on a 32bit host OS assuming a 64bit compatible CPU?

I have a 64bit dual core intel processor, but my host OS is Ubuntu 8.10 32 bit. I'd like to try fiddling with a 64bit guest - is this possible?

The host OS has nothing to do with the ability to run 64-bit guests, only the host's hardware. Refer to knowledgebase article 1901 for details on running 64-bit guests.
