    I have a new 24" iMac Core 2 Extreme 2.8GHz with 4GB of Memory.. and I also have a copy of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate which comes with both a 32-bit install disk and a 64-bit install disk. Anyway, I plan to use Office 2007 with Vista and also play some games. So my question to you is, which is better to install? The 32-bit or the 64-bit version?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Thanks!

    I'd suggest reading through most of that document before you even start to setup Boot Camp. I did and I felt much more prepared.

    I've read it before.. back in the 1.0/1.1 days. I remember before BootCamp being one of the people who wanted XP on my Mac so bad (just because I could) that I had that weird program running... that had you arrow between the windows logo and apple logo on startup. And it had no drivers so it was slow... but still... anyway... I'm in the know with how BootCamp operates.. I've just never had a 64bit Intel computer before.

    Ah, sorry. Didn't realize you weren't new to Boot Camp. My apologies.
