MySql on W2003 64 bit? - MySQL

I'm still somewhat new to MySql and to servers. ...was running mysql on a W2003 R1 32 bit machine. I had assumed that I could install this on my new W2003 R2 64 bit machine. When I went to download MySql 5.0 there was a note that a 32 bit machine is needed. Is there no way to run this on a 64 bit windows machine? ...and no alternative version?

    If I'm reading this correctly, there were 64 bit versions of MySql in the
    past. There is also an x64 version of the 5.1 beta, but the notes on the
    download page say it still should be run on a 32 bit machine (I'm confused).
    I'm trying to plan for the near future, could anyone tell me if a 64 bit
    version of both MySql and the ODBC driver required are in the works and
    might be available within the next few weeks or months?

    Thanks

    The Win32 version works well on a 64 Bit Win 2003 server. Only the ODBC
    driver needs some massage to get installed correctly. I heard from the
    connectors team this issue is being worked on. Otherwise you can
    usually run any 32 bit software on a Win 2003 64 bit machine (WoW,
    Windows On Windows). E.g. I also have 32 bit PHP running with my 64 bit
    IIS v6.

    IIRC correctly there was trouble with the 64 bit version (not sure if
    it was a security thing), so the 64 bit downloads have been removed. I
    got one copy before that happened and had to use MySQL Administrator to
    install the service correctly. But since MA is made for that it was a
    piece of cake. I don't know however when they will be online again.
