For 64bit processors such as AMD's Athlon 64 there is a version of Windows that's explicitly designed to take advantage of the 64bit architecture. That is Windows XP x64.

However, that doesn't mean that the 'regular' (i.e. 32bit) Windows doesn't run on 64 bit processors, neither is it significantly slower. In fact, the x64 version does have its severe drawbacks.

You are using the 'regular' 32bit version of Windows XP, which is fine and I recommend you keep doing. As such, you'll need the 32bit version of Daemon Tools as well.
