WinXP on 64 bit?

can I run 32 bit windows xp on a 64 bit machine?

I want to go 64 bit, but I am not too crazy about the lack of software support.

is there any advantage if I do?
God's got this all wrong. We are not special. We are not crap or trash either. We just are, and what happens just happens.
And God says, "No, that's not right."
Yeah. Well. Whatever. You can't teach God anything. -Tyler Durden

On an AMD 64 you can definitely run a fully 32 bit OS on the machine. I'm not sure how well Intel's EM64T offerings cope - probably well enough.

At the moment there is no advantage to using 64 bit to 32 bit for desktop applications, since no applications have been written to take full advantage of it; at best they're direct ports of the 32 bit version.
It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion...
