Question Linux / IA32 / IA64 / AMD64

Hi all. I headed to NVIDIA's website to download drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce256 card. I'm running Fedora Core 1. I needed to select what operating system I have, and the options were "Linux IA32", "Linux IA64", and "Linux AMD64". I don't know how to determine which one I have, and what are the contributing factors (if anything other than using Fedora Core 1) that allow me to know what I'm using. Below are the specs of my system. Thanks!

Dell Dimension
800 MHz Pentium III
256 MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce256
30 GB HD

IA32 = Intel Pentium - Pentium 4 (including Xeons), and AMD K5 - Athlon XP (including MP's).
IA64 = Intel Itanium/Itanium 2
AMD64 = AMD Opteron/Athlon64, AthlonFX-51

So you would want the IA32 version.
