Diff btwn 2 versions of 64bit Linux

I think I saw this with Centos but am not certain.  I remember seeing a IA64 or something, as well as an x86 choice both for 64bit OS downloads.  Will both work?

Hi

the iA64 is only for systems that have the intel Itanium processor installed

the x86-64 version is for AMD 64 ,and non itanium intel 64 bit processors


i.e.
if you dont have the itanium processor use the x86-64 version

IA64 is for pure 64bit system, like Itamium, and it is a totally, totally different archtecture, like PowerPC or MIPS or else.
AMD64, which are the common 64bit PCs, are actually 32bit x86 CPUs "pimped" to 64. So you'd better use always x86 compatible (x86,x86_64,amd64) architectures
