Be prepared to reinstall so have your data on another partition
It worked, with minimal borking.
Once I resolved my boot/gfxmenu/default.message issue, it now loads up, and runs like a regular Mint edition. Awesome!
Amarok, and K3b both take some time to load on my XFCE Felicia 32-bit, so I installed them, to see if there was a difference in load times on the x64. The load time differences are quite noticeable, and improved, especially with the K3b.
I'll tinker with it for a few more days, and if all goes well, I'll move it to my primary desktop partitions. And yes, always try to have your data on another partition. At the least. Not only is mine on separate partitions, all of my data is on another drive. That way, if I'm working with various distros on one partition, it's far less likely that I'll accidentally delete one of my data partitions, when installing another distro on my distro drive.
