No, really. If you want to use 64-bit Linux on that processor then you
need amd64. AMD pioneered the x86_64 architecture work and Intel later
copied it.

IA64 == Itanium, Intel's _other_ 64-bit architecture.

 English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on
 occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them
 unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."  -- James D. Nicoll
