Hi.  When a program in a 32-bit machine accesses a 8-bit data, is it =
slower than accessing a 32-bit data (since the bus is 32-bit).   If it =
is slow, can you tell me how much slower?     Thanks...

That would be highly dependent on your particular CPU and its configuration.
I suggest writing a small program and timing it!
