Windows 7 32bit to 64bit possible?

Hi, currently I'm running Windows 7 32bit and I want to switch to the 64bit since many people been using 64bit these days =)
So how do I do it?
I put the 64bit disc into my DVD drive?
I start up the CD from boot?
then I choose Custom Install?
then I choose the HD I want to install it on?
and then I click Advanced Setting?
then I click Format button?
then its all OK right?
are those the steps guy?
thx =)

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
