Is RP4440 HP-UX 11.11 32 bits capable?

I have a RP4440 server. I try to install HP-UX 11.11i (32 bits) into the server; however, it only allow to select 64 bits OS when come to environment selection.

Can I install HP-UX 11.11i (32 bits) into it?

No. Newer PA systems can't run 32 bit, PA-8900.
But why are you asking? You can run 32 bit applications fine.

The last PA-RISC processor on which a 32-bit kernel was supported was the PA-8200 (IIRC). On the PA-8500 processors and later (circa L and N class and beyond) only 64-bit kernels are supported. As Dennis points-out, you can run 32-bit applications on a 64-bit kernel just fine.
