the OS is 32 bit on our SharePoint server, but all I can download for SP 2007 is x64 or x86

Commented:
Good find it is tricky.

I don’t think you can have 64 bit MOSS on 32 bit OS. I am sure you have 32 bit MOSS Installed on you machine

on 64 bit machines you will see 'Microsoft Office Server ' folder in 'c:\program files' folder
if its 32 bit install it will be in c:\programefiles86 ' folder .
by the way ,this can be different if you change the folder at the time if install

Let us know !

Sorry, ufarooq, didn't see your post...

Commented:
Minimum requirements you have posted are right it says clearly all systems 64 bit that can be used to install MOSS 64 bit .

The folder in program files says microsoft office server.  We definitely have SP server 2007 enterprise, but when you right click My Comptuer/properties, that is nothing that says either x64 or x86 and I notice on all our 32 bit servers that nothing is shown as 32 bit or anything else.

Commented:
Same thing on our servers too. there must be some easy way to find out , i will post if i ever find .
one way is like i mentioned above on 64 bit OS you will have 2 program files folder

but on 32 bit OS you will find one .

Commented:
on 2008 servers and win 7 it says System type and its 64 bit .
Commented:
Start > Help & Support > System administration > get system information... somewhere in there it will tell you what the system settings are

Ufarooq: are you saying there is a 32 bit download for SharePoint 2007 server?  If so, where is it.  
Nsyyoung: I got to Help contents and couldn't lodate system administration.  We have XP loaded on this SharePoint server.

I was told our sharepoint server is x386 - so would that correspond to x86 download?

Commented:
I found it in Help and support as nsyyoung pointed out, but it was listed differently.  I never would have thought to look there. And our server is x86.  Thanks

Commented:
Glad you found it and glad I could help; I was looking at my own XP laptop when I typed that...

Commented:
yes there is a 32 bit download available for MOSS and its updates as well .
infact Companioes who start using MOSS right after it released , they all use 32 biut version of sharpeoint on win 2003 server 32 bit .

in your case i am not sure , never sae this 386 , but i will try x86 downloads . I am sure you have 32 bit version of MOSS

this is the best link to download updates

it will also determine if you need 32 or 64 bit so . you can also see all type of updates after clicking on request updates , select show hot fixes for all platforms .
