I'd have thought you could get a base system up and running without
problems. If the text mode install doesn't work - then you have bigger
I've just installed on a vaguely similar machine: the graphics card
wasn't PCI-E, though and the ethernet was a different onboard chip set.
Start out with the Sarge DVD's for AMD64 - you should be able to find
them from links from http://cdimage.debian.org - and go from there.
[Andy - who has just had the pleasant experience of migrating lots
of installed apps from i386 to amd64 just by using dpkg --get-selections
- lots of apps installed on one machine: use the above, tell dselect
to install the selected packages - voila :) - total time about 20
