I would seriously get a distro that is built for a 32bit machine. http://www.linuxiso.org/
I highly doubt that you can install a 64bit OS onto a 32bit cpu system. However you can run 32bit software on a 64bit cpu. However I reserve the right to be wrong and have someone correct me.
Distribution: Debian E, Vectorlinux 5.1std, Arch, Gentoo 2006.0
I agree with lord-fu.
No I don't think it will install on a 32bit system. Maybe there is some slick way around it, but it will cause you nothing but trouble...which is a bad start for using linux. We don't want to give you the wrong impression here
