linux kernel suffix
Sorry if this really is a noob of noob questions, but I've been googling for over an hour and I can't seem to find the right search term for the answer if it is out there.. without going through the process of learning how to compile a kernel, which I am not ready to do yet.

This is going on an old Thinkpad t61 (core 2 duo 2 GB ram) and the installer recommends one, but I still want to be able to understand.
Could someone explain?
