Mandrake is completly the best for beginners. I used it when I was starting out, and it really helped me get the basics down before I switched to Slackware.

(Basically) That's your chip/processor architecture. Most modern pentium/intel and AMD chips are i585 or i686. You can run files designed for your ix86 rating and lower, eg almost all can run i386 binaries

It's all to do with increased abilities of processors over time
