Is Windows 2000 Advanced Server 64-bit compatible?  Or, does it need to be Windows 2003?  we've got a few win2k adv sql boxes, i'm thinking we'd need Windows v2003 x64 Edition in order to run the 32-bit SQL apps on the 64-bit platform using WOW64?  
SQL is at the Enterprise Edition (sp4), which, of course, has 64-bit platform support.  
so, sql is maybe there, but the os isn't?

2000 has no x64 version - there was a "limited" version for Itanium, but that's a DIFFERENT type of 64 bit platform.  If you want 64 bit capabilities, you NEED 2003 x64 edition.
