there are some trial on the internet. I've heard it has lots of bugs. I would recommend to download the Windows Server 2003 64bit edition wich has been officially released about a year ago.

Windows Server 2003 64bit edition also takes advantage of 64bit just like XP64 but without bugs

the windows 64 bit is still buggy. they were wupposed to release it with their new file system, WinFS, but they decided to use ntfs still, so they could release it earlier with less bugs, lol
