I may not have gotten far enough into my research to know the answer yet, but I'll ask it anway.  

Can Rman be used to migrate a database from a 32 bit environment to a 64 bit environment? Would this work:  

  1. Take an RMAN full backup of the database
  2. Build a 64 bit machine
  3. Install 64 bit O/S and Oracle.
  4. recreate the exact same folder structure as on the 32 bit machine.
  5. Login to RMAN and do a redirected restore.

I have a database. Have to make sure that 9.2 is available in 64bit. If not, I would have to upgrade to 10g.
