Installing 32-bit and 64-bit Oracle on AIX5.2 machine

Can I have Oracle 9.2.0.6 64-bit (engine and database) and Oracle 9.2.0.6 32-bit (engine and database) installed and running on an AIX5.2 ML6 (64-bit) machine?

I have a few questions here.
  1. Can I have Oracle 9.2.0.6 64-bit (engine and database) and Oracle 9.2.0.6 32-bit (engine and database) installed and running on an AIX5.2 ML6 (64-bit) machine?
  2. If yes, how could it be done?
  3. Where can I get the Oracle9i 32-bit installer?

Thank you for your kind response.

According to Oracle's certification matrix, starting with Oracle9i, the database server for AIX 5L is always in 64-bit mode and ships with both 32-bit and 64-bit client libraries. This means that if the database server is 64-bit then 64-bit hardware (processors) is required. So, it appears that you cannot run Oracle9i in 32-bit mode on AIX5.2.
