It looks like there is a specific XBMC distribution for AMD64 from yesterday at least... Nice

Run 'sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list' in a terminal window;
Add 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc-svn/ubuntu hardy main' then save and close the file;
Run 'sudo apt-get update'
Run 'sudo apt-get install xbmc'

I hope this helps people that have had the same issue as me...

I was getting the "E: Couldn't find package xbmc" thing as well , did the above step and i got running. Unfortunately It keeps freezing on me and is not stable at all..........Stupid noob question , i have an Amd64 bit system but am running the 32bit hardy 8.04 , would this be the reason its running like crap?

No you should be able to run 32bit operating systems with your cpu with out a problem.
