using 32-bit SW on 64-bit OS
With Windows, if I have a 64-bit OS, I can usually install a 32-bit SW product on it.
I have a 64-bit Opensuse product (Opensuse 10.3 - long story).
Here is information on installing Zimbra (ZCS 5.0) on top of Opensuse 10.3
Installing ZCS 5.0.x on openSUSE 10.3 a complete guide - Zimbra - Forums
But - the software that is mentioned in the guide (the one you need to download) is here
Open Source Edition Downloads: Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Software by Zimbra
From above, you can see an item for Opensuse 10.3 *** but 32-bit *** version.
In general, is it possible to install 32-bit Software in an 64-bit system?

Yes of course you can .... but normally when there is a 32-bit package nowadays there is as well a 64-bit package
Normally 64-bit is better cause they can have extras
you can definitely install 32 bit packages on a 64 bit OS, you just need to have all the 32 bit dependencies installed as well (usually libraries)
