I've obtained a license from Microsoft and have accessed it from eopen .com.

There appears to be four different key codes, one for each of the following:
Windows Server 2003 R2, x32 ed.
Windows Server 2003
Windows Server 2003 R2 x64ed.
Windows Server 2003, x64ed.

I know that I'm not going to be using the 64 bit edition (I think). Which of the other two is the correct one to choose. i'm also not sure how the server knows that i have 35 seats. Do i need to inform my server?

Please explain.
