Choose IA32. IA64 means 64-bit processors (now they are very very rare).

IA32 - 32 Bit processor IA64 - 64 Bit processor.

IA32 should work fine for you.

But, if you want to check you can download NVchooser to show you which one.

Beat me to it Mara. Found one I could answer and was trying to be the first to answer. I don't find to many that I can do that with. Oh well. Maybe next time.
