We have a windows server 2003 with wsus 3.0 sp1 running.

How can I create an automatic rule that will decline all updates for IA64 processors?
If this is not possible, will this be implemented in the next release of wsus?

Only way would be to deselect from "Products" under the "Products and Classifications" option in the WSUS console
 
"will this be implemented in the next release of wsus?"

I'm very sorry but I don't have any "checkbox" or something else to choose from IA64, x64 or x86
I don't want to recieve updates for other then x64 or x86

That is why I said that would be the only way, Put all your IA64 machines in a separate target group and then set your automatic approval rules to include none of the classifications.
