Be sure to use the 32 bit Gutsy CD, or you won't boot on 32-bit systems.

BTW I use a USB key with my latest custom flash based 32-bit debian
install I made.  I do this b/c, among other things there's no ddrescue
on Ubuntu.  It uses unionfs & squashfs to mount the flash ro, and it
keeps one disk partition writeable just in case.  My blog (see sig) has
more info on how to do this yourself, though I should probably turn it
into a wiki.
