Yes there is a 32 bit version; the "Standard personal computer" release will work with 32-bit processors:


Please ensure you do not download the 64-Bit or SPARC versions.

Good luck!

Ubuntu by default, has always come built for 32-bit systems and they sure work great!

You can download it at: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Choose 7.10 Desktop and for "Standard personal computer"

Can you help with this problem?
