Here are the steps I would take to use it on a 32 bit system:
Download hdsentinel.gz from here:
Save the file to my home directory: /home/preston/
Open a terminal in my home directory (Accessories->Terminal)
Run the following command:
# gunzip hdsentinel.gz
Go into the newly created hdsentinel directory with the following command:
# cd hdsentinel
Make the downloaded binary executable with the following command:
# chmod +x hdsentinel
Run the binary as root with the following command:
# sudo ./hdsentinel
It should then give you some sort of output. Try that out and post
back if you run across any errors along the way.
