i386 is for 32 bit CPU (Intel Pentium, AMD Athlon/Duron)
x86_64 is for AMD 64 bit CPU

x86_64 = 64bit
i386 = 32bit
Do you have an AMD64 or other 64bit processor? Do you have the 64bit version of FC3?

you can find out what processor you have by running "uname -m" at a command prompt.
i586 means pentium
i686 means pentium II
I don't think fedora would run on anything below a pentium II
if you don't know then you probably have a 32 bit processor.
