If not, the 64bit OS will operate like a 32bit OS.

But because Windows has a lack of drivers for their 64 Bit OS's.

I really would suggest attempting to install to a unused partition so that when it fails to work correctly you still have a fall back position to work from should you need it. While you should be able to get all the required drivers through Vista there may be some compatibility Issues that prevent you gaining access to the Vista Partition.
