I have an AMD laptop,
 I downoloaded ia64  iso image , I thought it is the same,
I can't boot with the CD;
what is the difference between them?
It's a different architecture.

After 13 years (HP partnered with Intel in 1994), I'm truly
shocked that anyone geek enough to want to self-install Linux
doesn't know the difference between ia64/Itanic and AMD64.

Well, I'm not shocked because of that, I'm shocked because she/he says
that'd have an _AMD_ laptop and didn't use the amd64 port
straightforward but ia64.

I think we ought to be encouraging of geekful aspirations rather than rolling our eyes. My 2 cents.

Oh yeah, "amd64".
