Nope. Itanium = ia64.

x86_64 (or AMD64 or EM64T) = AMD Opteron / AMD Athlon 64 or Intel Xeon / Intel Core 2 etc.

RHEL4AS does, as does the RHEL5 server series.

Debian has an Itanium build.

SuSE Enterprise 10 also has Itanium builds.

So, simply put, all major distro's have an Itanium build. You just have to get the right media.

Shalom,

No.

There is a release of Linux for IA64, use that.
