Yes I think it is Debian confusing naming getting the way of your
The AMD64 kernel says the following:
# aptitude show linux-image-2.6-amd64
Package: linux-image-2.6-amd64
Description: Linux kernel 2.6 image on AMD64
 This package depends on the latest binary image for Linux kernel 2.6 on
all 64bit single- and multiprocessor AMD and Intel machines.

Confusingly it supports AMD64 and EM64T. So I don't think this is the
issue here.
