go for the 32 bit, i assume that you installed the 32 bit edition of sql server In order to ensure this run this on a new query window, where you will able to see whether a X64 or X32 is installed on your machine

Since it is WINXP Pro, then it should be a 32 bit processor whatever it may be Core2 Duo / Dual core or whatever it may be.

Just install the 32 bit version and no issues with it.

>> In order to ensure this run this on a new query window,

I assume we can do that once he installs SQL Server in his machine right.
ksfok needs to install this first to do that right..
