I always refer to the install handbook - I can't emphasize this too much.

I also read the amd64 install notes.

Because I have an extensive Unix/Linux background, I look at the alternate 
installation documentation.  I often use Knoppix to build up a new
computer based upon this information.

If I have a problem, I review the install handbook again.

Good luck,
