32 bit and 64 bit question

Keith S

Hi, please excuse my ignorance regarding this subject, but is it possible to have a 64 bit operating system installed on a computer with a 32 bit mother/main board?  Or, are mainboards just multi-purpose in regards  to whether a 32 or 64 bit OS is being used on it?
