    I have an Imac running 64 bit OS and windows XP 32 bit. How would I go about installing windows 7 64 bit?

    parallels 5+ (i believe 5 and up, but it might just be 6+) can run windows 64-bit no problems. you just need to make sure you boot OS X into 32-bit mode as there are a few services that parallels uses that are 32-bit only and will not work when running OS X in 64-bit mode. your 64-bit os x apps will still work just fine as long as they don't use a 64-bit kernel extension.
