Home do I know whether my system is 32 or 62 bit? I wanted to preview Vista
RC1 on my second hard drive.

First, it is 64 bit not 62 bit and it depends on your CPU chip. You must
have a chip that runs at 64 rather than 32. A lot of AMD's are 64 bit and
some Intels. Tell me what chip you are running and I may be able to help
you.

You have a 32 bit CPU.
