32 or 64 Bit Install for Server 2008

I am in the process of building a Terminal Server for a customer on and HP 350ML server. At this stage the box will primarily be used for TS services. In the long term I may consider installing exchange 2007 as we migrate from their SBS 2003 standard server.

As I understand it Exchange 2007 has to be installed on a 64 bit installation and will not run on 32 bit installed OS. If I installed the OS as 64 bit what will happen to TS applications that I need to install that are only 32 bit. I am looking at installing Office SBE and some Accountanting applications like MYOB and Accountants Office.

Will these still run if the OS is installed as 64 bit or would I have to install as 32bit. If I install as 32 bit now and want to install exchange at a later date I assume it would be a complete rebuild of the server?

Never run any 64 bit OS so all a bit new to me,

Thanks
