I have downloaded the 32 bit version of ubuntu 12.04 from the site and when I try to do a clean install on the computer it gives me the PAE error saying the processor cannot address 64 gig of memory. The 32 bit version I downloaded should not be looking for that function.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
Your machine is rather old (2005?) and does not support certain extensions the recent versions of Ubuntu kernel require.
