Any help on this matter would be appreciated.

I have 64 bit 12.04 LTS installed, I am looking for everything needed, step by step order to install 32 bit wine in order to run windows 32 bit software and drivers to connect to USB devices in order to download stored collected data.

Since the end of free support for windows XP is approaching I am jumping to Linux in order to continue using perfectly good hardware. The drivers can not be upgraded to work with current windows versions, the company has long been out of business. Why be forced to stop using perfectly good operating hardware when an OS is no longer supported.

I am trying to do this with the currently installed 64 bit 12.04 LTS without having to uninstall the 64 bit and install the 32 bit version or should I just ditch the 64 bit and start over with the 32 version of ubuntu?

I have some experience with linux but am no expert by any means.

Thanks for any help.
