I currently have windows xp home on my 64bit machine and have been thinking
about upgrading to windows xp 64 bit. I know I can copy my settings across
but is there a way I can copy across the registry in such a way i dont have
to re-install all my programs cos that would be very annoying.

There is no upgrade path from Windows XP Home Edition
to the 64-bit version of Windows XP. A "clean install" is
required.
