if you need to install Mongo on 32 bit. But then, why would you run Mongo on 32 bit. It is supposed to process humongous amounts of data and 32 bit will be bad choice.

sudo yum install -y mongodb-org
sudo service mongod start
And boom! you are up and running. To verify whether it is has successfully started, you may check the mongodb log
cat /var/log/mongodb/mongod.log | grep 'waiting for connections on'
You should see this line:
[initandlisten] waiting for connections on port 27017
Also, it may be a good idea to enable service at the startup.
sudo chkconfig mongod on # stop and restart sudo service mongod stop sudo service mongod restart
