    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.
