IA64 is itanium.  Nothing else.  amd64 is x86_64 which is 64bit x86.
If you have a standard PC with an intel or amd cpu that is 64bit capable,
then you want amd64 (or i386 if you just want 32bit).

Itanium is totally different than x86 and nothing to do with it will
ever work on an x86 of any kind.
