Windows 7-64 Vista Ultimate 32 Bit dual install

I have a copy of Vista Ultimate - 32Bit available. I have 3-1TB drives. Are there any advantages to doing a dual install of Windows Pro 7-64 and Vista Ultimate - 32 Bit? Or should I just keep it simple? I need some experienced opinions. Thank you in advance.

In your case I wouldnt bother... There is no advantage in running a 32bit version of Vista as you already are running Windows 7 64bit ...
