Can a 32 bit Windows Server 2003 disk be used to add a 64 bit DC to a 2000 Domain

If it can't be used, can I download the 64 bit R2 disk from the Microsoft site?

You can't download the 64 bit verison from Microsoft you have to purchase it. No, if you want a 64 bit system you must have a 64-bit Server edition.

A 64-bit DC is different to a 32-bit DC, and needs a slightly different schema extension in order to be installed to the domain. As mentioned above, if you want to add a 64-bit DC to your domain, you MUST run the version of adprep on the 64-bit Server 2003 CD media. 32-bit edition will not suffice.
