Well I have not heard of Zorin before but their website would be the place to start.
It sounds as though the installation image you are using is for a 64bit cpu so look on
their site for something along the lines of i386, i686, X86 in the file name. Usually
64bit version have either x86_64 or amd64 in the title.
