amd64 is the catch all for 64 bit debian. It dates back to the days when amd
had the only consumer 64 bit cpu. If you want a 64 bit system, this is what
you install for amd and intel consumer cpus.

Don't know this, I have been a amd guy. I guess, short of a break through for
amd, I will have to change now.

I have not, however, I have 4 hds in my desktop. Nothing to it barring some
strange bios settings (raid) that will not allow your machine to "see" two
hds. I will go out on a limb and say this is not the case. Just pick your
hd to install to, install grub on the MBR and away you go.
