If your computer is 32-bit you can only run 32-bit software - you can't run 64-bit software.

Your post makes no sense.

X86 CPU's come in 32 and 64 flavours

Linux for X86 CPU's comes in 32 and 64 flavours

You board only supports Socket 478 x86 32 CPU's:

That was near the time when they started 64 bit systems. I doubt it will support it but you can easily try to boot to a live cd that is 64 bit version. If it boots then we can suspect it is supported. It should simply say it can't boot.

You should have a 604 xeon either dual or single. Some of those did have some goofy 64 bit scheme for xp/server 2003 I think.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

The CPU is what determines if the system is 64-bit or not. Listing the motherboard is useless.

This board I will state again only supports 478 CPU's and does not list Xeon's...

"Intel® Entry Server Board SE7210TP1-E and Intel® Entry Server Platform SR1325TP1-E is designed to support Intel® Pentium® 4 processors operating with an 800, 533, and 400 MHz system bus speed."

I must have read the wrong spec sheet then.
