I agree with you. You do know that you might be waiting a long time for 64 bit Windows. It has been just around the corner for almost a year now.

The problem is that no one really knows when Win 64 (Longhorn, same product) is going to be released. If you can get your hands on a cheap OEM Win XP, that will probably be the best bet for now.

The reason that it doesn't install is that you don't have the computer to boot from the CD ROM first. If you have two optical devices, figure out which one loads first and use that one.
