Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You really should try to google stuff before you ask...if only to save other people some time. PPC i686 x86 refer to processor architecture of the particular computer you are using. I am assuming you are trying to decide which piece of software you need from a list with these referrences in them. PPC is Mac, i686/x86 refer to Pentium class chips. Whichever particular arch. you have - pick that one.
