Attempting to read the FAQ for the amd64 port leads me to a page
requiring a login.

Starting from the page < (Who's computer is this?) >, I follow
the link "The debian-amd64 howto and FAQ" to
< (Who's computer is this?) >.
That redirects me to
which is a page requesting a username and password I don't have, and
displaying the message "You've been redirected to this login page
because you have tried accessing a page that was not available to you as
an anonymous user."

It does not seem reasonable that reading the install FAQ should require
a login.

(Note that on the page < (Who's computer is this?) > there is
also a link to debian-amd64-howto.html, with the annotation "Broken as
of 20110729. FilipusKlutiero".)
