I thought this article would cover some basic BeAPI ( HAIPI ;) ?) and compiling topics. So, I'm a bit disappointed, but neverthelesse, some good source of links to usefuls stuff.

I tried the alpha on my (AMD based) computers but it didn't even boot. (Works in VMWare of course, but I dislike the speed there).

Hi electr0n,
The BeAPI is extremely well documented here in this reference:
http://www.haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/bebook/ .
I really didn't want to reinvent the wheel!

Try a more recent nightly build, also don't forget "Safe Mode" which you enter by pressing the`space bar at the start to boot.

One of my desktops is an AMD machine and it boots fine, it probably is not the CPU causing your problem.

Good Luck
