i was under the impression that the retail kit included both 32bit and 64bid versions but it says at the bottom of that page you linked to
- NOTE: 64-Bit Edition DVD not included. Info on obtaining 64-Bit edition is included in this package, only 32-Bit edition DVD is supplied in the box.

so yes you only get 32bit edition and you probably have to pay shipping for 64 bit edition

Well looking at the site, it appears you only get both versions with Ultimate

They are on ebay... but some people dont lik ebay, they say that whatever you get will be broken or something. But they have teh 64 bit home premium there. $150 for one I saw. Of course you have to wait 3 days until vista is released before its shipped.
