Hi, first of all, from what I know ia64 won't
work... That release is for the itanium kinda cpus...
You have the choice between amd64 version (it
works with processor having the emt64 extensions
like the xeon) or the i386 version.
If all you need will be compiled from the ports,
I highly recommend the amd64 version...
If you are planning on installing precompiled
binairies you'll find that there is no support
nowhere for the amd64 version so I recommend to use i386
Hope this helps
