Probably you download the EMT64 Bit version instead of the 32 Bits one.

Subject: Edubuntu Install Issue


I am the IT Tech at a small K-12 school district. While we are, I guess you
could say, a Windows school, I have been experimenting with various versions
of Linux for a possible roll-out on some of our machines. Anyway, I have
found the Edubuntu product and was going to give it a try but when I go to
install it on a PC it tells me that the software I am using is for X86
machines and that I am running a machine with an i1586 processor. Both of
the machines that I have tried (A Dell GX240 and AcerPower F2) have P4
processors. To my understanding, these should be considered an X86
architecture. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
