I can not get my adobe Flash Player installed


I am trying to install adobe Flash Player onto my ubuntu system(64 bit) it keeps saying wrong architecture 'i386' when I try to download the software. What can I do to fix this problem? I am trying to find out what the i386 is refering to, What is my computer running if it is not running i386? (where do i find it?)

also, I am downloading .deb for ubuntu 8.04+ and I have I believe it is 9.04 if I am not mistaken.

You're running amd64 (i.e. 64-bit).

yes yes, I know double posting is bad, but being new to the forum, I did not realize you broke it up the way you did. Softare, hardware, newbie, I considered it a newbie question but then I saw software and decided to post it here, b/c i felt it was the better option. So say what you will, but I am not in the wrong on this one whether you like it or not :P
