    I would love to start using MS Exchange 2007 for my small 5-user environment. I want to test it out and check out the new features that it offers especially to Windows Mobile devices. I found on VMWare forums the following:

    Please note that Workstation and VMware Server require a 64-bit CPU to run a 64-bit guest operating system. While it is theoretically possible to emulate a 64-bit instruction set on 32-bit hardware, doing so most likely results in unacceptable performance degradation.

    I would like to know if there are any instructions out there for me to “theoretically emulate a 64-bit instrucation set” so I can install Windows Server 2003 64-bit guest on a 32-bit Windows Server 2003 machine running VMWare Workstation 6.

    Any ideas?
