I'm not 100% sure as I did this a long time ago with Debian, but I think
if you boot the AMD64 version in a 32-bit machine, it will fail and tell
you that the architecture is different. You can install 32-bit on a
64-bit machine, and no, I don't know why your Dell machine came that way.
My point is, I think you won't have anything to lose for trying AMD64 of
Debian...it will not allow you to complete the install, so [as far as I
can tell], you won't do harm to your machine and it won't go as far as
erasing your Ubuntu.
Someone correct me if I am wrong...
