I want to upgrade from Server 2008 Standard 32 bit to server 2008 R2 32 bit.  

Questions:

1) Does Windows 2008 R2 come in a 32 bit version?

2) Can I run an upgrade or does this require a clean install?

3) I have the operating system on two drives in a RAID 1 and data on 4 drives in a RAID 5.  Will the data remain intact and will have access to the files on the RAID 5 data drives after the upgrade?

Thanks,

cja
