64 Bit Processors

Can anyone tell me if a 32bit application such as Office 2003 would work on a 64 bit processor.
Also will windows xp professional install ok with this processor?

Any help with this would be appreciated.

In a word - yes.

You will just not unlock it's full potential for multi-tasking until you install a 64 bit operating system but all other things equal it will allow better games playing.
