Hello,

Is it possible to install both Windows 7 32bit and 64bit OS on a single computer. If so, how would it have to be done. (ie: separate hard drives etc)

You will also need to have two copies of Windows 7, so you can install Windows 7 32-bit on one partition and Windows 7 64-bit on another.

it is very possible
unless you have some hardware that you absolutely need, and there are no x64 drivers for it, i don't see why you would need to do this.
First, you have to make sure you have 2 separate copies of the OS. you can only have one version installed @ a time.
It should be installed the same way you install 2 operating systems on any computer.
you need to create a separate partition for each OS and install them independently.
There are allot of great tutorials on how to install 2 Operating Systems

You only need to tweak the bootloader if you install XP after 7. If you install XP first and then 7, it takes care of it for you.
