Thanks for all your responses,
Unfortunately I don't know the specifics of how to get the compilers and OS. I am only in charge to find out if Python-Dev has made already the work.
I suspect you get the OS and compilers from the MSDN Subscriber program.
I will certainly let you know of our experience if/when we decide to compile Python on x86_64. It might not be before a while though, so probably someone else will be able to report before us.
Thanks again, alex.

Microsoft made available an OS to the general public (2003 Pro, I think) for x86_64 at *least* 6 months ago, maybe more, and MSDN members have access to other OS builds as well (at least 2003 server).
That was no release (in the sense of a product release) of the system, though, was it? My understanding that the system is still considered in beta by Microsoft.
You have at least 2 compiler options, namely MSVC++ and GCC. ICL does not (yet) support x64_64.
How can you get a copy of MSVC++? VC.NET 2003 does not come with an AMD64 compiler to my knowledge, nor does the February 2003 (?) platform SDK incorporate one (which does incorporate an Itanium compiler).
