what does i386,i586,i686 mean?


I wonder about RPM packages, and I want to learn what does those extensions are such as

i386
i586
i686
fr0
fr1
fr2
fr3

so that I can download the appropriate one for my system
which is a Celeron 366 Mhz, 224 MB ram (enough I guess)

thanks

intel 386 compatible
intel 586 (pentium) compatible
intre 686 (pentium II) compatible
fr? FreshRpms.net file

i doubt the celery is 686 compatible, 386 or 586 will be fine though.
