This question has been discussed before,please refer to this mail:
or search "i686" in this page to see other comments:
I understand the differences between i386, i586, and i686 processors.
Some 32bit people that I try to convince to switch to Fedora do not
understand that ISOs and RPM packages with 'i386' in their name are
modern and not meant for 13 year old computers.
I was thinking that names such as:
'Fedora-12-x86-DVD.iso' instead of 'Fedora-12-i386-DVD.iso' and
look more modern and up-to-date. reflecting the contents od the ISOs and
Fedora is a great product. I appreciate you efforts and your work. And I
congratulate all of you that work to produce it.
So name them as you wish. Which I am sure that you will do. :-)
Have a good day.
