Default Installing 64bit from scratch on a 32bit live system

I'm new to FreeBSD and have 5+ years experience with linux(Gentoo), now i want to test something new (I already have installed FreeBSD lokal on my machine and in vmware and played with it) on a deticated Server with 8GB Memory and the hoster only serve a 32bit version of FreeBSD 6 and i want FreeBSD7 and 64 bit, is there a way to install FreeBSD 7 amd64 from scratch via a FreeBSD 6 i386 live cd ? I have found many links for normal FreeBSD from scratch but there isn't a way for installing 64bit system from a 32bit system.

Is there a way ?

You need to use a 64-bit installation CD in order to install the 64-bit version of the OS.

Help for FreeBSD: Handbook, FAQ, man pages, mailing lists.
