Yes, please report those errors so we can help you further.

The VM version does not need to match the Image version. In fact, at the
moment I'm running a Squeak VM version 3.3 on my PDA with the 3.8 image,
and it works fine.

The 64-bit VM can run both 32-bit images and 64-bit images. Unfortunately,
I can't remember how this worked. If I remember correctly, you could compile
two binaries - one for 32-bit images and one for 64-bit images.

I also believe that the 64-bit VM was originally made because the 32-bit
VM didn't work at all on 64-bit architectures. Can anybody else confirm

Also make sure that you have the ia32-libs Ubuntu package installed -
this may magically make the 32-bit VMs work.
