May I presume you are referring to a Linux operating system?
If so, you can use any working machine with a connection to the internet to download your preferred flavor of Linux and burn it to CD or DVD.
Then install from that CD/DVD to your machine of choice.
You will have the option of selecting 32bit or 64bit on some flavors of Linux.
Here's two popular types:

If you wish to become familiar with Linux OS you will be better off starting with a 32bit system because of ease and compatibility of utilities.
This is not something that can be instructed in a few Forum replies.
I'd suggest you study the Tutorials offered via the sites I linked.
Or consider the classic Tutorial offered by Bob Rankin... http://lowfatlinux.com/
By "study" I do mean study and put what you learn into practice, then study some more.
If you are looking for a more nearly "out of the box" experience with Linux operating system, consider one of the many Linux assembled Distros
Such as the one's I've already linked for you (Ubuntu or OpenSUSE 1.2) (don't go for the SUSE 1.3 at this time, since it is still being developed)
I've put Linux systems on some of my "older" machines, and while they have run as well or better than their previous Windows OS, it has generally been disappointing.
Most of us have grown used to substantially stronger/faster machines.
Putting Linux on an old machine will run it, but it won't make it stronger/faster.
To get started without the major expense of building/buying a new machine...
Consider just buying a new Hard Drive for one of your present machines.
Keep your existing HD with Windows and your saved data. Just set it aside.
Install a linux Distro on the machine with its now new HD.
Give it a test Drive.

>>Hey, that dialer is my speed. My first phone had a thick black cord , spoke into one part and listened from another -my phone number had 4 digits and a neighbor named Claudia was the operator who listened to all the town's business.
