Is Win ME compatible with AMD 64bit

I've been trying to put WIN ME on a partition to use some older programs... trouble is the ME disc isn't recognised to boot from. Is ME compatable with an AMD 64bit CPU?

Yes they are backward compatible with 32bit software

Is the drive formatted in fat 32 and not NTFS.
ME will not work in NTFS.

I've prepared a FAT32 partition with P Magic, but when I reboot with the new partition active it tells me I have an invalis system disc. The BIOS is set to boot from CD. XP & the PQ emergency boot disc are recognised & will boot, but not ME, it used to on my old AMD 800mhz system, but not on this? I've also tried to boot from the WIN 98 floppy, but all I get is bad command. Thats why I wondered if ME's not compatable.
