How much Arctic Silver 5 should I put on a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 Brisban?, and what is the right way to apply it?

I'm asking this because I looked at the instructions on the Arctic Silver site for both the intel and amd dual core and they are different.
With amds you put a dot about the size of a BB and then put the heatsink on top of it. For the intel you put a straight line down the middle.

Is a dot about the size of a bb all I need? Should I put any on the heatsink?
