Is the instruction set that runs on an AMD CPU essentially the same as
that of Intel?

Essentially, yes. Otherwise it would not be possible to run the same
software, eh? AFAIK they are *at least* the same all the way up to P4. The
MMX/XMM/SSE instructions (and support thereof) may differ, but that *should*
be in a documented way through the CPUID instruction. Compare their
respective processor manuals for the differences.
