i wanted to know if i could upgrade from a 64 bit version of windows to a 32 bit newer version, my mom's college only lets her download a 32 bit and i don't have any cd's to burn so i have to do upgrade. i highly doubt i can but it is worth asking.

No. Simple, obvious answer.

You can use the 32-bit keys with the 64-bit disc anyway so if you can get a key from it just download a 64-bit DVD from somewhere else and use that. Not sure if you can "upgrade" from XP x64 to Vista x64, which I assume is what you're trying to do, but it's better to do a "clean" installation anyway as upgraded ones are always messy, and 64-bit is of course a much better choice than 32-bit.

Yea that would truely be the best way to go, especially since pc's are going towards the 64bit future anyway. Server 2008 R2 for example only comes in 64bit.

Well, if your computer supports 64 bit oses, it'll of course be faster with a 64 bit os.
I would not consider changing to 32 bit versions.
I think you must better download the Installation DVDs and go through it!
