Windows 2003 64-bit Specification

I have a Trial Version of SharePoint Portal which comes with a Trial Version of Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition which has a system requirement of 64bits.

My motherboard is Asus P4S800 which has a bus width of 64-bit.

I do want to assume anything Do I COMPLY.

According to Asus' website this sytem board does not support 64bit processors

If I misunderstood your question and it is not Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition 64bit version then the system requirements are listed here

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition
Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition
Component Requirement
Computer and processor
 133-MHz or faster processor for x86-based PCs; 733-MHz for Itanium-based PCs; up to eight processors supported on either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version
 128 MB of RAM minimum required; maximum: 32 GB for x86-based PCs with the 32-bit version and 64 GB for Itanium-based PCs with the 64-bit version
Hard disk
 1.5 GB of available hard-disk space for x86-based PCs; 2 GB for Itanium-based PCs; additional space is required if installing over a network
 CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
 VGA or hardware that supports console redirection required
 Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, 64-bit version is compatible only with 64-bit Intel Itanium-based systems and cannot install on 32-bit systems

It would seem that I need to obtain Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition for 32 bit. Are you aware whether the other applications such as SharePoint Server which specify Windows 2003 Enterprise edition will run properly are the two interchageable in that way.

I have actually decided to close this question my last comment really pertains to a previous question I asked regarding the installation of Windows Sever 2003. I will persue this line of questioning there.
