Exclamation Source or Binary?


I want to try fedora core 3 but when i go to download it there are like 10 different options to download (via: bittorrent). There is i386 and x86 and 64 bit, source and binary, and whatnot. My system is an Athlon XP 1800+ (one processor). I dont have a dvd burner so the dvd download is out of the question. Does anyone have any idea which one i should use?

I have the same processor : Athlon XP 1800.
Download either x86 or i386 ISOs.
Good luck.

binary is what you need. source is for people who want to rebuild packages on their own or contribute in some way to development.
