Hi Abiosis,

> 32bit(Retail)?


Yes. The retail disk will allow an upgrade from a qualifying product
(XP/2000) or other version provided there is no change in language.

> from my understanding,64bit'll be clean install that I already know...


You understand correctly.

The 64bit installation DVD can only be used to install and run the 64 bit
version on a 64 bit computer.
