    must be nice to be all 64 bit. But then for you, I'm not surprised.

    Well, I did take that old SBS server, which would only do 32-bit, and turn
    it into an iSCSI target, with Starwind. Perfect for it -- lots of physical
    space for disks, dual GigE NICs, good cooling, and 3 GB of RAM that's not
    useable on any of my newer boxes. Installed Server 2k8, 32-bit, installed
    Starwind Enterprise (great product!) and Bob's Your Uncle, we've got a SAN
    here.

    And yes, I have been very careful to only buy 64-bit capable machines since
    they became available in late 2004. Keep in mind that XP x64 and Server 2k3
    x64 Edition have been around (as RTM) since the spring of 2005. There's no
    reason to not have been running 64-bit for a long time.
