Did you update the dhcp server config as suggested?  If your dhcp server is
pointing clients toward the amd64 data, your new i386 images won't get

That's exactly what I'm saying.  This is for the same reason you can run
32-bit windows on amd64 machines.  My own opinion, for the moment, the is
that the 32-bit edubuntu system will probably suit most people better,
unless the size of your install dictates that 64-bit is necessary (eg you
need > 4GB ram).  Basically, most people need FLASH and it's a real pain to
get working in 64-bit edubuntu.  You may at some point want some other
proprietary apps too and chances are they need a 32-bit environment too.
