I think what you got yourself are images for the Intel Itanium
processors. What you need are either the i386 or the x64 (AMD) images.
Another poster has said it doesn't matter too much which ISO you get
but is dependent on what HDW the VM offers.
Do you know from experience that the i386 is required in my case?

The question whether i386 is required in your case or not depends on how much memory you are planning to allocate to the VM as well as what software that you plan to use on it.
If the memory allocation is 4GB or less, the i386 iso is quite enough. If there's any specific software that you plan to install which needs a 64bit kernel, then install x64 iso.
If your net speed is 512kbps or higher, it'll be easier to use the net-install cd rather than the full DVD.
