Depending on the hardware requirements, it sounds like a simple chroot
would work here - just a clean 32-bit environment to do your build &
test in, without needing a completely separate OS instance.
To set up, do something like:
sudo debootstrap --foreign --arch=i386 natty 32-bit/
sudo chroot 32-bit/ /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage
Then to enter the chroot environment:
sudo chroot 32-bit
Also, the `schroot` package contains some useful stuff to manage your
chroots, bind-mount home dirs (so they're shared), and restore the
chroot to a clean state when you're done.
Hope this helps,
