I had a few q's on the same subject. DO NOT wipe out ur current OS and replace it with xp64, its not meant to be ur primary OS, its still in its testing phase and there arent drivers for all your hardware, therefore many things will NOT work. If you decide to trial, do it on a seperate drive. I will do that once i have added my second HDD.

Windows XP x64 (Windows XP 64-bit works, but its a Workstation Version for pure 64-bit Itanium2s) is a pretty damn good Beta. It works fine; its when third party stuff comes in that it falls. Internet things are the first you'll notice may not work. Some other programs are likely not to. I installed it a while ago but am not a Dual Boot person - so I uninstalled it a few days after.

When its in final release, if you have an AMD 64, its well worth getting it. The performance is of great advantage.

It would happen to a Linux Guy on Conference - but they don't give demonstrations of new software do they
