Code:
Linux IA32       ---->     32 Bit Processor (any)
Linux AMD64      ---->     64 Bit Processor (AMD)
Linux IA64       ---->     64 Bit Processor (Intel)
now only you can answer that question, cause we don't know what processor your running

What to pick..
Linux IA32 <--- 386,486,586,686,k7, Pentium4
Linux AMD64 <--- AMD64 bit systems including Opteron
Linux IA64 <--- Intel 64 bit system.

So unless you have a 64bit system of some kind the answer is ia32.

Edit: Really should preview before I post you beat me too it..
