Keeping in mind that I am new to this arena...

I have some Intel systems - both 64-bit and 32-bit - that I might be able to 
use as build platforms. 

What does the Debian team need from me to be able to use these systems?

I can't guarantee they'll be FAST, but I'll do what I can to make them 
EFFECTIVE.
