Yes. Install on separate partitions or separate disks.

Yes, it is possible.

Though I'm less clear why someone would want to do that. If backwards compatibility is the concern, then XP would be the better choice for a 32 bit backup - whether real or virtualized.

Win 7 32 offers far better support for hardware and offers many great built in's that simply xp don't have. I was actually thnking of doing the same hence in my searching on possibilities is how I got to this site.

I want to do dual boot simply for hardware testing purposes before I swing over to 64 bit for good. Had an issue with TV Tuner on 64 where 32 worked like a charm.
