I have Windows XP 64, and now i want to install XP 32-bit in other partition in the same drive, but the problem is that i cannot find a partition software that supports 64-bit, so its imposible to me install XP 32-bit and xp 64 in the same computer

it is very possible just use software such as partition magic and make a space and install the 32 bit version there.

The easiest boot disk to use is the ultimate boot disk seen here http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/ just make this bootable and it has tools to partition the drive with.

Yes i tried Partition Magic 8 and DOS partition program (UBCD) but P Magic dont support 64-bit and a DOS partition program is not very easy to use (for my knowledge) like a windows enviroment.

ok im sorry i just read where you said it might be to difficult outside of these unless you find maybe a simplier program to run in dos you would have to wipe the HD and install xp 32 bit first so you could use partition magic.
