Error installing Flash with windows 2k sp4 - Macromedia Flash Player

I just re-installed Win 2000 Pro (desktop) and I'm trying to install support programs. I installed IE6 SP1, I was able to install Acrobat Reader, but I can not install Flash or Shockwave both fail in the same place. I have a screen shot showing the error. The forum software doesn't appear to support screen shot images tho :(. Message box reads: Could not load the DLL library C:\WINNT\System32\Kernel32.dll (GetSystemWow64DirectoryA) The specified procedure could not be found. I'm purplexed ... why would a system subroutine be missing from the windows kernel? Am I being given the wrong version of flash/shockwave ...

    Default Error installing Flash with windows 2k sp4

    I just re-installed Win 2000 Pro (desktop) and I'm trying to install support
    programs. I installed
    IE6 SP1, I was able to install Acrobat Reader, but I can not install Flash or
    Shockwave
    both fail in the same place. I have a screen shot showing the error. The forum
    software doesn't
    appear to support screen shot images tho :(.

    Message box reads:

    Could not load the DLL library
    C:\WINNT\System32\Kernel32.dll
    (GetSystemWow64DirectoryA) The specified
    procedure could not be found.

    I'm purplexed ... why would a system subroutine
    be missing from the windows kernel?

    Am I being given the wrong version of
    flash/shockwave for Win2k?

    What should I look to download?

    Thanks

    WoW (64), everybody is having this problem. Is Adobe going to fix it or not?
    The best description I have is from a translated Chinese web page:

    Shoot the tranlation link didn't work, but in fact you don't need it. The important stuff is in English:

    For whatever reason I'm not having proplems with Flash. Check out the
    Schockwaave site, is e pages lost and evyone is highly ed off. Here's the
    big, and I mean big, Microsoft technical explaition. It has to do with 32 / 64
    bit incompataility on NT and 2000 Pro: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306819 .
    It'very scary but maybe they're releasing a new version of Flash that's
    incompatible with 2000 also. On the Shockwave site we're just begging them to
    release one of the older versions tha work with 3K,
