CentOS 5 symmetric dual xeon processors installation trouble

I have downloaded CentOS 5 and am trying to install it from scratch. I have an IBM X235 server with 2 - 64bit - Xeon Processors.I have downloaded both x86 32 bit and x86 64 bit and says that my cpu's(2 Xeon) does not support long mode and to use a 32 bit distribution. When I use a 64 bit version it tells me the same thing. What kernel switches should I use ?

It turned out to be a bad first x86 32 bit cdrom 1. I redownloaded it from another site and bam it worked. Let this be a lessoned learned to always check your image.
