Intel Celeron and Pentium Ds with 64bit Linux


After looking around heavily, I see SuSE and Slackware have definitive x86_64 versions. Ubuntu, Gentoo, Debian, and many many others seem to have ia64, and amd64 versions, but no x86_64 versions...

So what are the options for those with 64bit intels, just SuSE and Slackware?

ia64 version are for Intel Itanium.
x86_64 and AMD64 will run on Intel 64 Processors like Celeron D and Pentium D (as I known).

x86_64 and AMD64 mean the same thing

I thought that sounded right, but after looking through a bunch of FAQs and all they made distinctions between EM64T and AMD64 that made it sound like AMD64 versions wouldn't work on EM64T versions(D series Intels).

Thanks guys, I am getting a Live Kubuntu 5.10 AMD64 to test this out.

Well, the Live CD straight up doesn't boot and says "Your CPU doesn't support long mode. Use a 32 bit distrobution" being as this is a Celeron D, it is supposed to suport 64 bit instructions, and I see people all the time on SuSE forums mentioning they are using Celeron and Pentium Ds. So it would appear that AMD64 is incompatible with D series Intels.
