amd64 is mostly the same as any other architecture, except that at the
moment you probably need to be using one of the daily d-i builds to
get a working installer build. I've written and tested the hack for
extra "dedicated" source, and we should get the official CDs/DVDs
built soon I hope.

Once the sarge release has settled down, we're planning to do regular
builds of amd64 etch alongside the other arches.
