    Happy Holiday Stagione amici miei,

    Will they both run without messing each other up? Will I be able to
    choose which one I want to use? I have over 150GB of free space on
    both drives. So there is plenty of room

    There are a few high end programs that I use that would benefit
    greatly from utilizing the extra power of a 64 Bit OS?

    Do you have a 64 bit processor? If you do, Google "multiboot Vista".

    OK thanks1

    I have a Packard Bell 286 with Dos 3.1 So I'm sure it will handle 64
    bits. :)

    What did the woman of the night do when I called her a 2 Bit wh..e?

    She hit me in the face with a bag of quarters! :-(

    How about putting your question in the main body of the text and not
    split across subject / text?
    Yes, as long as you install on 2 different partitions as as both Vista
    shouldn't be an issue with bootloader. You also need 2 license keys.

    Better off IIRC , some folks put on 64bit OS, make sure you have all the
    hardware drivers you need, then put 32bit OS in a virtual PC.
    but for 64bit host / guests

    See the newsgroup / links posted several times, if you searched 24HSHD
    for 64bit stuff,
    or vis MS news server

    Same question was asked in the last 2 days, and very often.
    A statement or a question? Only if they are 64bit apps, otherwise more
    RAM, faster disks , faster CPU would help more.

    Don't forget you need a 64bit CPU and 2GB or more RAM makes a

    OK thanks, I'm still reading about a dozen posts a day on how the 64
    bit system is working for people.

    If I can dual boot, I would be willing to play around with it.

    Thinking about doing away with dual boot all together.

    Heading for the replace XP Pro 32b with XP/Vista 64bit. Then go the
    vmware route, 64bit host and put back XP 32bit as a guest OS for the
    things that don't work.

    Remember on an XP/Vista 64 bit OS, several things don't and won't work
    anymore. Stuff like your freeware/shareware that runs 16bit installers,
    the apps may be okay but if you can't install it then it's no good. Then
    and low level drivers firewall, av and so on. You need 64bit versions
    of those.
