like any other 32bit package you want to install on your 64bit system,  
you first have to enable "multi-arch" for your system,
and then you can install the 32bit package.

i don't know the commands by heart, but it's something like:
# dpkg --add-architecture i386
there should be plenty of documentation on this subject on the web  
(though probably none related to Pd-extended)

since Pd-extended has *many* dependencies (and most of them are  
platform-dependent, that is: for a 32bit PdX you need to install 32bit  
dependencies), you might end up having a full-fledged 32bit-system  
residing besides your 64bit-system.

are you sure you want this?
(esp. since on recent Ubuntus, you should have most externals  
available as native packages, so you can simply "aptitude install"  
those that you need - in 64bit mode!)
