Unhappy HELP goof up between AMD64 and i386

Hi there, I have Intel dual core and from windows (xp) I installed Debian for AMD64 while it was supposed to be i386, I don't have CD writer or flopy or ZIP USB what should I do ?, The OS is working nice but when I tried to install WINE it shows some missing lib, is it because of the mistake ?. I am an electronic student and want to install KICAD and have it's tar.gz file but it doesn't have any README or INSTALL file only a install.txt which is ofcourse a readme but I can not install KICAD with it any solutions please...... I just started with LINUX, thx in advance

Wine should install easily using the graphical software add/remove tool called Synaptic. You can also ninstall kicad using Synaptic.

or you can install them from a command line

aptitude update
aptitude install wine

not sure what you need wine for, but that should install it..

then to install kicad since it is also in the Debian repositories. you can simply do

aptitude update
aptitude install kicad

The above directions assume you have an internet connection and Debian is configured to get packages from the Internet.
