Default Which driver to get

Hi, I have a quick question

I'm fairly new to linux and I just want to make sure that I'm doing everything right.

I just want to know which driver install I should download. IA32, IA64, or AMD64. I'm pretty sure I know that answer but I just want to make sure. Here are my specs

Pentium 4 1.4 GHz
640 MB PC800 RDRAM
GeForce 4 Ti 4200
ASUS P4T Motherboard with 4x AGP

I think I've listed more then I need to, but I would appreciated an answer

For a Pentium 4, you need the IA32 driver. This is true for VIA Cyrix, AMD Athlon / Athlon-XP, Intel Pentium / Pentium 2 / Pentium 3, Intel Xeon, and most other '32-bit' processors as well.

If you upgrade to an AMD Athlon64 or AMD Opteron, you'll want the AMD64 drivers. If you get an Intel / Hewlett Packarad Itanium, you'll want the IA64 drivers.
