    Download for what? or just generally?

    differences between i386, i686 etc:

    SRPMS is source RPM, its a redhat package of source for an app. normal rpm's are pre-compiled binaries.

    Hi
    i have an AMD too,(good choice)
    i choose athlon or amd if there is,if not i pick i686 or i386.
    Since AMD is also x86, there is no problem.

    also there was a detailed post about this, make a search.
    Have a nice day
