no, all my linux servers now are 64 bit, I havent' run a 32 bit system 
in a long time.

if your internet is working over ethernet, you should be able to install 
what you need via yum, rather than reinstall from different media...

     yum install NetworkManager-wifi

and you should be able to configure wifi with the text mode 
NetworkManager tool, nmtui

     yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop"

should install the full Gnome desktop environment, and the gui 
NetworkManager, which is probably easier to use.
