  2. I think you answered your own question. Either version of Vista will
    work, in and of itself, but the 64-bit version is going to have more
    compatability problems with older software. Almost impossible to say
    what older software until you try it.

    Try dual booting, just a thought.

    If that board cannot take more than 4GB of RAM, what's the point at this
    stage? You're just asking for a whole load of driver problems, and probably
    some software incompatibilities as well. All 32-bit shell extensions won't
    work. When you buy Vista you'll get both versions anyway, so wait until you
    know it is safe to go 64-bit. MS should never have made a 32-bit version of
    Vista to make a clean break of the past.
