    yes. As long as you install the oldest OS first then the newest.
    Oh and they have to be on different partitions of your hard drive.

    What 32 / 64 bit version of windows are you installing? ie: If youre installing XP (older) / Vista or Windows 7 (both are later than XP). You install XP first, then Vista or whatever after

    Good question.

    I take it then that you may wish to install both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the same O/S and dual boot them?

    why not just have 64bit installed(if ultimate or professional) and install XP mode?

    Umm what have you got that needs 32 bit?? 64 bit does support 32 and 64 bit programs. Only prob you may have are drivers. They have to be 64 bit, or whatever wont work
