SharePoint 3.0: Is the Installation 32 bit or 64 bit?

If you have an installation of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and you are trying to determine whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit, here are a couple ways you can do it:

* Task Manager; OWSTIMER.EXE
64 bit: OWSTIMER.EXE if it is 64 bit
32 bit: OWSTIMER32.EXE if it is 32 bit

* Windows Explorer; Program Files
64 bit: Installation directory is \Program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\
32 bit: Installation directory is \Program files (x86)\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\

it's a few years late, but you have the 32-bit, 64-bit locations mixed up for the install directory.
32-bit is (x86)
