I think there are DVD images, go read the FAQ on cdimage.debian.org for
netinstall images and such.

It will run perfectly fine, and still easily outperform a P4.

You can not change from i386 to amd64 without doing a reinstall using an
amd64 install cd/dvd.  You can install i386 however and make a chroot
with 64bit in it if you install the amd64 kernel in sarge i386 (this is
how I currently run my system).  You can then use 32bit programs
normally, and use the chroot to run 64bit programs.  This is not
completely convinient though since things like alsa and iptables and
such won't work with the 64bit kernel using 32bit tools, so you have to
use the chroot 64bit tools to manipulate those things.  Using amd64 as
main and a 32bit chroot is much more convinient.
