I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I would install the
32-bit version. Like Windows there are still some problems with 64-bit
drivers for some hardware. It's unlikely that you will need the last
drop of performance out of your machine so 64-bit gets you potential
problems without any major benefits.
