VmWare 7 on 64 bit Win7 U:installer says '32 bit OS'

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello, I am trying to install the latest SUSE in a virtual machine created on 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate. When the CD loads in the VM's console it says 'This is a 32 bit computer. You cannot use 64 bit software on it'. I am running the free VmWare Server 2.0. Windows 7 sys info clearly shows it as 64 bit OS, and it is running on i7-720 (definitely a quad core 64 bit proc). Any suggestions? Thanks. AK (Distributions)
