is MY copy of Windows XP Pro 32-bit?

P: 93
I've got a 32-bit machine (Pentium 4) running Windows XP Pro (version 2002). I understand that there are 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows XP Pro, and that some 64-bit versions of XP Pro will run on 32-bit machines (although I can hardly believe it, and I've also been told that's not true). So how do I know for sure that my copy of XP Pro is 32-bit?

From the Run menu, input this:
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe" /d C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL SYSDM.CPL
(Which is the same as right-clicking and choosing "Properties" on the "My Computer" icon)

Go to the "General" tab. If it doesn't say "64bit" in there, pretty sure you've got a 32bit os.
Also if your XP is from 2002, the 64bit version wasn't available back then (I don't think)
