i don't know that the IA32 driver is specific to Intel processor ... i 
think they really just mean "32-bit driver" ... i've used the IA32 
driver on AMD machines before (so far, only on 32-bit AMDs) without any 
issues ...

the AMD64/EM64T driver should work on any (?) 64-bit processor as far as 
i know ... EM64T is Intel, so essentially saying "AMD64/EM64T" would be 
the same as "64-bit AMD/Intel" ... just like "IA32" would be the same as 
saying "32-bit" ...

hope this helps,
