    You are correct. At the moment there is only a 32bit installer for OSX. If you do a search, you will find that this subject has been covered extensively. You can use the 32bit installer.

    As a matter of interest, why did you think that there was a 64bit installer for OSX?

  • welcome steve,

    basically this is related to the fact that OS X 10.5 is still 32 bit (more or less only memory addressing is 64 bit whereas kernel and GUI is 32 bit)

    10.6 aka snow-leopard will introduce 64 bit kernel and probably 64 bit GUI ...
