ia64 is Itanium, and is not em64t, and is not compatible with em64t.
EM64T is intel's implementation of the AMD64 architecture. The port of
Debian/amd64 is almost official (but not quite, so it can't be found in
the usual places yet).
CD/DVD images for AMD64 can be downloaded from
although most AMD64 machines are quite new, so you might have better
success using an installation image with a newer kernel. This image can
be found at http://tinyplanet.ca/~lsorense/amd64/
I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
