Actually, AMD 64 is now the standard x86-64. It was originally designed 
by AMD because intel were making their Itanium thing but that didn't go 
so well. Anyway if you're running 64 bit windows that's probably why the 
32-bit python install is having a problem. Download the version Walter 
suggested and you should be good to go.
