I think you could also give it a try with the current 64bit version.
I may be wrong, but what it means is that if you have more than 2Gb RAM, a
32bit system cannot address them and therefore you need 64bit,
unless you enable big memory support that slows down the 32-bit system
(that is what I recall from the time, but again, I may be wrong).
