    Forgive my ignorance, I understand the new 64 bit CPUs should work on 32 bit and presumably 16 and 8 bit software, just as the previous 32 bit CPUs ran 16 and 8 bit software. But my server Orange quotes their new Vista CD installation disk for their speedtouch modem will only work with 32 bit CPUs, so presumably I dare not buy a 64 bit CPU with Vista until they claim it is compatible.

    Also if you have a dual core CPU how do you change it over from 32 to 64 bit etc. I presume it could only be achieved by the cumbersome method of accessing the CMOS setup after bootup.
