AFAIK all versions are on the 1 disk, they just have to sell you the license for the 64bit version

Lancool PC K62
Phenom II x3 @ 3.5Ghz
4GB DDR2-800
ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II

From what I've read, the 32-bit license is interchangable with the 64-bit license. A Home Premium license key would (should) work for both.

That is, if you buy Home Premium, you have your choice: 32-bit or 64-bit. But you can only use one at a time. That way, if you have a 32-bit CPU now, you can install the 32-bit, then down the road when you get an x86_64 CPU, you can install the 64-bit, all with the same license. That's the smart thing for Microsoft to do to help get mainstream computing onboard with 64-bit.

Nah, you can buy OEM 64Bit or 32Bit individually. You can also buy OEM versions
of Premium, deluxe and business with both OS's (64 &32Bit) on them with a few quid
lessthan double the price. If you buy 64bit only, or 32 bit only, you only get that one OS

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

I'll just stick to Windows 3.11. 16 bit works well, so why bother changing. It boots up instantaneously and doesn't bsod.
