them to install OS w2k8-64bit, but when I am trying to install WSS 3.0 sp2 that
I downloaded from MS site it is giving me this error WSS 3.0 "setup is unable to
proceed due to the following error s this 32-bit product must be run on a 32-bit
Operating system. For 64-bit support ......"!!! Question is, is there anyway to
install WSS 3.0 on w2k8 - 64 bit or am I going to have to have them reformat
this box and install 32 bit OS and what happends when we go to 2010 64 bit?
