For most purposes, as far as users are concerned amd64 = x86_64 = x64
(depending on which OS/distro you're looking at). So wheter the actual
CPU is intel or amd doesn't really matter.

Hmm ... not sure if Xen Live CD is the right tool. And judging from
your questions, I really recommend you use Centos 5.6 instead (which
comes with older, but well-maintaned and rock-stable version of Xen),
choose virtualization during installation.
