sorry yes you would want the newer one.
i386 is the archetecture, most probable if you had a newer computer it will be i686. i383 will work fine on your computer but if an application is compiled with i686 is uses some of the enhancements on the newer processors such as MMX technology to increase performance.
Here is my fstab file. I added the windows part
LABEL=/1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows auto
you can add /dev/hde1 by adding the following to the bottom of your fstab file
/dev/hde1 /mnt/hde1 auto
you will have to create the directory /mnt/hde1 before this will work though.
then restart the computer it the settings should work.
not sure about the DSL stuff because I only have a dialup connection
