I would suggest using the i386, unless you have specific requirements
for amd64, because it has a better support for certain ('non-free')

>From my i386's aptitude:
$ aptitude show linux-image-2.6-686-bigmem
Linux 2.6 image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4
This package depends on the latest binary image for Linux kernel 2.6 on
Pentium Pro/Celeron/Pentium II/Pentium III/Pentium 4 with 4-64G RAM

So, unless you have more than 64G of ram you should be fine with i386.
