I guess I already know the answer, but I want to get a 2nd opinion.

I have a PC with an AMD Athlon64 CPU and I want to download a Debian
release to install on it. Is the Debian IA-64 download the correct
release for me to download?

I'm also curious. Does 64-bit chips have a backward compatibility
so that they can also runthe IA-32 bit architecture release?
