I can't think why you would want to do it, but you will need 32-bit drivers.

More systems support a 32 bit than they do a 64 bit.

In almost all cases you may have to seek out a few drivers no matter what you have.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. If it is working then don't mess with it. You can run nearly any fully 32bit program on 64bit windows 7. You cannot install a 32bit program if it comes with an outdated 16bit installer though. You cannot use old utilities if they are not windows 7 compatible and they may need to be specifically 32bit or 64bit depending on what they do. Most normal programs that are older can install on either though some older programs may need to be installed under compatibility back to XP or 98/95.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
