    Not really, but you ideally need XP professional, rather than XP Home. If you've already got XP professional with SP2, you're all set.

    BTW, you can't make your topic title bold. And, for most people, the 64 bit version of Windows isn't necessary. Plus, with it, there are few programs that actually run at 64 bit.
