To boot the machine in 32-bit mode get into a Terminal and then type
sudo systemsetup -setkernelbootarchitecture i386
Hit Enter and you should get the message changes to kernel architecture have been saved.
Reboot the server, verify it is running in 32-bit mode by going to About This Mac... and proceed to install RAMS. Once it installs successfully, to boot it back in 64-bit mode type
sudo systemsetup -setkernelbootarchitecture x86_64
