.net 2.0 framework 64 bit installation?

Hi,

I recently purchased a hosted Virtual Machine package.  It's 64bit Windows Server2003.  At first I didn't even consider that 64bit would be a problem.  Only ever worked with 32bit machines.

So, I continued by installing the .net framework 2.0. (dotNetfx.exe) and got the following error:
"This product is not supported on a 64bit operating system. Setup will now exit."

So; next I downloaded NetFx64.exe, which I assume is the correct installation exe for 64 bit os?  However, half way through the install I got the following error:

"Error 1920.Service '.Net Runtime Optimization v2.0.50215_x64'(clr_optimization_v2.0.50215_64) failed to start.  Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."

I tried to manually start the service but it wouldn't start.  This is the error it gave me:

"The .Net Runtime Optimization Service v2.0.50215_x64 service on Local Computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the performance Logs and Alerts service. "

So I had to rollback the install.  I was logged in as administrator. Any ideas?
