    You should install 32bit version ( i386/i686 ) only. Check this link.
    I would suggest you to install latest version, Fedora 8. Download Fedora 8 DVD or LiveCD from here. LiveCD has install option too. If you dont have fast internet connection then go for LiveCD only.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You can install either a 32-bit (i386, i486, i586, i686, X86) version of Linux or a 64-bit (X86_64) version on that processor. I would recommend you not use Fedora Core 6, however. It's several versions old and you'll likely have a better experience with a newer version.

    The latest version of Fedora Core is 8, which can be found here:

    Fedora Project

    You do not have to purchase anything to use Fedora or most any other Linux distribution. The only reason you should purchase a physical disc is if you do not have the bandwidth to download them yourself. Even then, you shouldn't pay more than about $5-10USD for it.

    If you're interested in seeing what other versions of Linux are out there I recommend looking at DistroWatch.com. Also take a look at our introductory threads here:
