I recommend you download and burn a minimal CD.

http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/


Then Debian will install the critical pieces, and you can download the rest of what you need. I'm not aware of any option to download a k8 kernel right off the bat. I would download the i386 ISO, install it, and then download/build your own k8 kernel after Debian is installed. I just built a new AMD64 machine so I'm about to head off and do that right now.

there is not an official Debian port of AMD64 yet. They are working on it, check it out at http://www.debian.org/ports/amd64/. Have fun!

The current pure64 port is "experimental". 97% of the programs have been ported but some apps still can't be run in 64 bits (Flash, OpenOffice). There are work-arounds to that though. I was going to do a pure64 system, but I had trouble accessing the repositories during installation and I was just like aww screw it. So for now I'm trying to run a 64-bit kernel and video drivers and have everything else as 32-bit. I'm going to wait for the amd64 port to become a little more mature before moving over (it's scheduled to release with Etch, which is the next version after sarge).
