Linux dialog executable

I was trying to write a simple menu using the "dialog" function only to find out that the version of linux i am running (I have previously worked on HP/Sun/ICL/AIX versions of unix)does not have the "dialog exe" and the one that someone has put on this box is not compatible.As follows:-

file /dir/dir/dir/dailog Retruns:-
dialog: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, SPARC, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

where as
file /usr/bin/diff
/usr/bin/diff: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

Where can I get the correct version of dialog.

uname -a gives :-
2.6.18-371.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 5 21:20:46 EDT 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
