The versions are actually 32-bit (Windows Vista x86) and 64-bit (Windows Vista x64), just to clear up any confusion. :huh:
I believe if you right click on My Computer and select Properties it will show you which version you're running.
Also, in order for you to be running a 64-bit OS you must have a 64-bit capable processor, this means something along the lines of an AMD64, AMDX2, Pentium D, or Intel Duo processors. If you don't have one of those you're likely running a 32-bit version.
