You don't say what flavour of processor the box has, so I'm assuming it's
an AMD/Intel x86 descendent.

How about a Ubuntu CD?  That comes in a 64-bit edition and IIRC boots
straight to a desktop.

You could of course just boot your usual 32-bit Knoppix CD.  If it's
actually a hardware fault it will probably manifest itself in 32-bit mode
