Which seems they want. I had a look at the Windows 2003 Server for 64
bit, and Windows Media Player and anything that has to do with it is
only included in 32 bit versions - So it looks to me like Microsoft wont
even try to port it...

Or alternatively install a second, 32 bit system and changeroot into it
(you will have to mount -o bind some things like /proc and maybe /tmp
for X/KDE/whatever).
I very much prefer this approach though it needs more hard disk space.
