    Are you using amd cds on the computer if so that is why its not working you need the i386 isos and yes it will work on your computer.

    Unless the CDs you downloaded are AMD64, then it doesn't matter whether they say AMD or Intel. The chips use the same architecture and you should be able to install any X86 Linux distribution on either PC.

    The AMD64 ISOs are for AMD64 and Intel EM64T 64-bit chips only. For a more in-depth description of what i386, AMD64, X86, etc means, look here.
