Thankie much, I also got the same answer from Wolfram, not being a
computer weiner would be nice if Wolfram put that in 'language-for-
dummies' on their site. It might be, but I could not find it.

I have to get a laugh out of my experience at finding a machine loaded
with Vista 64, called Dell , sales person  says Vista 64 What?! The
person was real nice and helpful when I made it understood what I
wanted, still did not have a cookbook way of assembling a machine with
a 64-bit OS. Said they would get back to me. Have an email at HP right
now asking the same question. Asked a local electronics specialty
place if they would make me one, they said yes but that I would have
to supply the Vista 64 OS.
Plenty of 64-bit CPU machines out there, but an off-the-shelf with a
64-bit OS .... well , not so easy, I guess?
