Yes. It would appear that you downloaded a 64 bit edition of CentOS and you only have a 32 bit cpu. You need to use a 32 bit edition on your machine. That rules out CentOS 7 at the present time since only a 64 bit version of that is available.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
