My recommendation, take it for what its worth:
32-bit distros to me are a short lived proposition IMO.
Example: I'm running Centos 6, 32-bit version. I recently ran into an issue where a package
(clamav) started using a 64-bit library for decompression of files. End result, end of scanning
for email viruses as this lib won't run on 32-bit AND, the lib hasn't been updated for 32-bits in
Forced to move to Centos 7 to get 64-bit libs. Centos 6 is still a viable supported OS until end
of 2019 or 2020.
So, ditch the box and get something that runs 64-bit..Your time will be better spent!!!
