Why from hard drive?
If you have followed many other threads on this list.
All you need to do is download the 32 bit iso,
and burn it to dvd. If your dvd is not working or don't have one,
then install it onto a 4GB flash stick (the iso is 3.1 GB) - you do that
by first installing
sudo yum -y install livecd-tools
after that, insert your 4GB flash stick and run the command:
sudo /usr/bin/livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr /tmp/boot.iso /dev/sdX
where X is the letter corresponding to your flash stick.
Once done, reboot: either select CDROM or Flash USB stick from BIOS boot
I think on most bios'es you press F12 key to get the boot menu.
Then you simply do a fresh install.
I had tried to do "upgrade" so that I would not lose my home dir.
It did not work because you cannot upgrade F13 64 bit to F13 32 bit.
SO, back up your home dir and any "precious" files before you do this.
