This has certainly appened, *but* I have only see it happen with downloads of Sarge images as amd64 are not mentioned on the sarge pages (because it was not a release arch). To the best of my recollection, I have never yet seen this happen with Etch images. To prevent this an additional "note" about what to use with EM64T processors could be useful. Or maybe a link "Confused about all these images?" to a new page with a general overview of types of images and arches would be good. > > 2- Ignore wether their PC supports 64-bit mode (and in the latter > > case, see #1). > > 3- Ignore wether their Mac is powerpc-based or x86-based (and in > > the latter case, see #2) That said, all your arguments are very reasonable. I will take a closer look at the patch later. The page needs some reorganization anyway because the KDE and Xfce images should get a place as well. In general the "getting Debian" pages (including distrib, CD and devel/d-i) could do with some restructuring. IMHO it is a bit of a maze ATM.
