You want to continue with the x86 architecture. The sparc is an old Sun chip and the PPC is the PowerPC chip that was used mainly in Macs.

I agree, if the installation program is compiled for a different chip, it probabaly isn't even going to boot.

I suggest the "structure" that contains "MS windows" somewhere in the name. That partucular "structure" has WORKING acpi/apm > hibernate, suspend, etc actually work there. Something I would find overwhelmenly important when choosing structures for a Laptop.
