    I currently have XP x64 running and would like to install XP x32 on
    another partition. When I put in my MSDN disk, the option to "Install
    Windows XP" is greyed out.

    I've read on some forums that MS wants OS installed old to new. Am I
    out of luck here?

    Just one question? I have installed x64 on a new system (no other OS) I
    am loving it! Why install something old? Just my opinion, I considered
    that as well Andre is right the article on the forum is helpful. Good Luck!

    I'm finding that there are some tools (e.g., Work Item utility for Team
    System) that won't work with XP x64.

  6. As Andre suggests, see my dual boot blog for how to set up dual booting,
    even if you're doing it in the wrong order. Another thing to consider - run
    your older OS in a virtual machine, using VMWare or Virtual Server.
