Default Installing Debian Testing ia64 with Netinstall-CD?

Hi,

I'm running Debian GNU/Linux Lenny (32bit).

Here I want to install on my VirtualBox the Debian Testing ia64.
Because of the ia64 architecture, I don't know whether is that
possyble?
Maybe it's better to install the i386 architecture here?

ia64 is the Intel Itanium - a chip which very few people have even seen
(It's used in very high end machines from Intel/HP/SGI - the sort of
thing that powers the back end of a bank )

It is NOT the 64 bit Intel chip which powers your machine if you have a
newer Pentium/Core/Core Duo or whatever - that is the amd64 architecture
in Debian - it's equally suitable for AMD and later Intel chips. [AMD
were there first with the architecture extensions idea hence the name].

Virtualbox may be able to do 64 bits if your underlying chip is 64 bit -
if not, use 32 bit Debian as on your normal machine.

All best,

AndyC
