32 verses 64

If I have Vista 64 bit on my system now can I load a clean version of Windows 7 32 bit and delete Vista?

Yes, just follow these instructions for a clean install.

You will choose custom install>advanced options and format.

Then the install will continue and you will have Vista 32 bit.

Why would you want to take a step backwards (in platform)? Keep in mind, you won't be able to use all of your system memory, either.
