32bit install on 64bit system

P: n/a
Hello,
I could really use some help. I'm trying to install a python program
on centos4 x86_64. When I run 'python setup.py' it ends up in
/usr/lib64/python2.3/site-packages/ instead of
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages. It's a problem because the program
I'm trying to install is a dependency for something that is only
32bit. How can I specify a 32bit install? What I've tried so far:
When I try 'python setup.py build --build-lib
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages' and 'python setup.py install
--install-lib /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages', it installs the 64bit
version into the 32bit library. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,
Peter

Try using the 32bit version of python to run setup.py
