I have CentOS 5 (previously 4) running on a PE 2650 which came with a
PERC 3/Di RAID adaptor (Adaptec actually) and it clearly is a 32 bit
system so I would think that you installed the right version.

Obviously the installer ran and that tells you that the 32 bit OS works.

I would suspect that have a grub issue with the install (i.e. - not
installing grub on /dev/sda)

Suggest that you do...

boot installation disk again
enter 'linux rescue' at boot
have it locate the installation for you and get to a command prompt
type 'chroot /mnt/sysimage'
type 'grub-install /dev/sda'
type 'exit'
type 'exit'
remove the installation CD and reboot
