    Unhappy Problem installing Mandriva-Linux-free-2006


    I downloaded 3cds from official ftp:
    Mandriva-Linux-Free-2006-CD1.x86_64.iso
    Mandriva-Linux-Free-2006-CD2.x86_64.iso
    Mandriva-Linux-Free-2006-CD3.x86_64.iso

    My cpu have 32bit distribution so I downloaded that iso files that was x86_x64 (I think it is suitable for both tips of cpu (32bit and 64bit)), but when i put the first cd, boot computer, and at the instalation menu press enter. after loading there is black screen and text:
    ''Your cpu does not support long mode. Use a 32bit distribution''.

    What is this?

    I downloaded one more os: mandriva-linux-ONE it installs and every thing seems to be ok. but i need Mandriva-Linux-free-2006or2007 version.

    What is wrong? Can anybody help me?

    No, the x86_64 version is for 64 bits CPU. The 32 bits version is called i586.

    Why ? Mandriva One is the same, except for the artwork (you can install Mandriva Free artwork in Mandriva One anyway) and for the non-free drivers and applications (that are included in the One edition).
