Depends on whether you're running a 64-bit OS. Note that you can run
32-bit binaries in 64-bit vanilla universe w/o problems (if you have 
the shared libraries at hand, or linked statically). Otherwise you'd
have to maintain two sets of binaries. The $(ARCH) macro comes to mind.

condor_q -analyze cluster.job should tell you what's going on.
If there are no met requirements, look deeper into job and machine class ads
(-long option to condor_q and condor_status), then come back here with
the output :)
