Running Vista 32bit, recovery 64bit????

Hi,
I have had a number of problems all week and thanks to the guys here i
have been able to sort most of them out. With a failing laptop I have
managed to back up most of my files in order to reinstall windows (no
alternative).

I purchased this laptop in june of last year legally from a large
distribution chain in Australia. I have a toshiba satellite a300 psag4a
02600m and am travelling in the uk... When I came travelling i thought
to pack my toshiba recovery disk, just in case. However, now I am about
to do a full repair/reinstall/whatever, I've noticed that the OS that
came installed on my laptop is Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, while
my toshiba recovery disk (only for sale with a new toshiba satellite
a300 blah blah) is Windows home premium 64bit...

Will this even work?
I dont mind formating and reinstalling manually, but surely a recovery
disk wont do this? Its a 2 disk set and it says it contains software as
well..

Im at a bit of a loss, should I run the disk?

Formatting and re-installing is what a recovery disk does best..
