    In my case XP 32 or 64bit booted faster with my old ABit mobo than it does with the ASUS Max mobo.

    Same deal with Vista 32\64bit too. I believe it's mobo related as i've seen it happen back when P3 were out but that was against a AMD chip.

    It really depends on what drivers you need loaded to effect boot times. In 64 for gaming, you can disable a lot of services that tend to bog the system down. You might wanna try yamiscoft xp manager for tweaking the os, I wouldn't use the reg cleaner from it though, not quite tweaked for xp 64, just stick with ccleaner, from my experience it didn't destroy the os, as most reg cleaner seem to do with xp 64. The difference between xp32 and xp64 is huge for stability and gaming.
