I have a client that has IE 8 on a 64 bit machine and they cant run flash. How can we get flash to work on this machine? How can I get a 32 bit of IE on the machine. This is a Vista machine.

Hi -
Use Internet Explorer x86 when running x64.  
START | type Internet | select Internet Explorer [ NOT "Internet Explorer (64-bit)" ]
The actual location of IE x86 is \program files (x86)\internet explorer\iexplore.exe - you can make shortcuts from it.  
Adobe missed the boat on this one and does not yet have Flash Player  for x64.  You can run all Internet using IE x86 under x64.
