i386 or x86_64?

Hello guys!

I am a newbie.

After trying out a Knoppix CD, I wish to explore further into the world of Linux.

I wanted to download Fedora Core DVD or CD images but am not sure which version to get. I am trying it out on a AMD Duron 800MHz, and dunno if it is 32-bit or 64-bit.

Please help. Thanks.

Also, is Fedora Core suitable for a newbie? Your opinion welcome.

Your Duron is 32-bit, I don't think there are any 64-bit Durons.
