which file to download fc4


guys? I am going to download FC4 from the redhat fedora site using the bttorrent link, which ones do i need.
I have a celeron 2.93Ghz (at a 64 Bit).i am open to making a DVD image, but whats the diff between PPC and i386 ? I am a little confused.

PPC stands for PowerPC, which is the processor Apple computers use. i386 is the Intel processor architecture, but since your Celeron is 64 bit, try the stentz-dvd-x86_64.torrent file. Unfortunately I'm still a Linux newbie myself so I don't know what the source image is.

Hope this helps.

Source package will be having kernel source. It will be helpful if you want to compile the kernel by yourself or if you want to make some changes to the kernel. The binary is the already compiled kernel, the ready to install version.
