Exchange Upgrade

I'm currently in the midst of planning an Exchange 2003 upgrade on brand new machinery. I've read somewhere that the future release of Exchange will only run on the 64 bit version of the Windows 2003 Server operating system. With this in mind, should I load the new Exchange server with the 64 bit version now in preparation for the next upgrade or will I run into problems running the current version of Exchange on the 64 bit operating system?

Exchange 2003 is not supported on 64 bit. So you will have to install it only on 32 bit windows.

Is there option to install Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 64 Bit Edition?

The next version i.e.Exchange 2007 (E12) is supported on windows 64-bit.

So if you are planning to go for Exchange2007 , you will have to change the upgrade the hardware to 64 bit.
