Well, I found out that for me, it isn't going to work. I have several things I need that depend on 32 bit technology, like my palm and that can't be used with this O/S. So as soon as I can get myself together, I am going to reformat that drive and put my standard XP Pro on that drive. I was wanting to do that anyway. I prefer having my O/S on my smallest hard drive. That way, if I do get a virus on it, it's limited in damage. Liz

well i need to reformat and like liz im gonna put my os and a few thing on my 40 gig drive so they will be away from my raid. its just i have like 150 gig of stuff to move differant ways like dvd isos to burn and crap so i guess ill have to get o work on that. i tried the x64 windows and really it has almost no advantage at this time except for being able to access more than 4 i think gigs of ram which i dont think there are but a handfull of mobos that would support that so for now it seems its only good for server/workstations and for a free version of windows
