    I am running Windows XP Professional and recently bought the Home Premium
    version of Vista. I have ordered the 64 bit DVD, which they well could take
    up to 4 weeks to be delivered. My question is, can I upgrate to Vista 32bit
    now, and when the 64bit DVD arrives, do a clean install to that operating
    system? All on the same license (because its the same computer) ??

    You have a bigger problem than the 32 bit to 64 bit issue. I also ran XP
    Pro. Unfortunately, Microsoft apparently forgot that some of us liked the
    better control and security of an NT based system and opted for XP Pro at our
    homes. You cannot upgrade XP Pro to Vista Home Premium. You will need to do
    it as a new install.
