Running MS Office 2003 under Windows 7 ?

I'm helping my mother to choose a new PC, but concerned that her MS Office 2003 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 software may not run under Windows 7 Home Premiuum.
1) Am I worrying needlessly?
2) I've heard that 64-bit computing is more likely than 32-bit to have problems with existing hardware (HP Photosmart printer and Epson Perfection Scanner) - Does Windows 7 Home Premium come in 32-bit and 64-bit versions?

Part 2.

I would NOT move back to 32 bit 7. Drivers are at the maker's web sites when available and the gains are worth it.
