Wanting to download an installation manual for debian linux but I don't know what 'build??' my laptop is. I am presented with the following options:

Alpha
ARM
HP PA-RISC
Intel x86
Intel IA-64
Motorola 680x0
MIPS
MIPS (DEC)
PowerPC
IBM S/390
SPARC

I have a Compaq Armada 1750 so I am guessing it is one of the intel options.

Any help much appreciated.

Almost certainly Intel x86, though knowing the CPU type would be final confirmation.

Yep. All the others are the other CPU makes and models. That's a subset of the number of architectures to which Linux has been ported. I think it's over 60 now.
