Well, then perhaps we should just educate all the users.... oh wait,
that's not an option. IA64 (as an architecture) pre-dates amd64, em646,
x86_64 (or your preferred mnemonic) by years. 

Perhaps a README.FIRST in the download directories could clarify a lot
of the confusion.

Or something short and pithy on http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/ that
covers the same territory.
