i ordered a notebook with xp home sp2 with an amd athlon 64 3200. after
reading comments in other forums, if i was to change from 32 bit to 64
bit, it was told that i would have to change to xp pro sp2 in order to
support the 64 bit and that the home version could not. is this true?
say it isnt so.

There is no 64-bit version of WinXP Home. And WinXPx64 has only
Service Pack 1.
