Default Dual boot Xp Pro 32/64 on New Rig WIP

I've found lots of threads on dual booting XP Pro with a different OS, but none that specifically explained the process for a 32/64 bit dual boot. After screwing around for the better part of a day, the best solution that I could come up with was to use PQBoot for Windows (menu item in PartitionMagic 8.0) to allow me to switch between OS'es after booting to default OS (for now I've used 32 bit). This works alright, but it is not really a true dual boot config. I couldn't get BootMagic to work properly at all. I'm sure there are better ways to do it. Any suggestions? Thanks.
