I'm not aware of any AMD86 package...I know there is x86, and amd64. It's called amd64 because it's a 64bit package, which AMD came up with first, then Intel used as well. All processors bar a few made today are 64bit. That AMD64 package can be used with any computer with a 64bit processor, Intel, AMD, Solaris, or any other. Your Intel 3220 is a 64bit processor, so get the amd64 package. You can also use x86 if you wish, but you won't be able to recognise more than 3.5GB or so of RAM in the machine.
