real NEWB question about Wine


I want to use WINE and I'm using Redhat 9.0 but Wine doesn't come with redhat anymore. I went to WINE.hq to download it but I saw versions to download like i386 and i686 but I have an i586. Which do I download? Thank you for your time and sorry for the extreme newb intensity of this question.

you have an i586? that's a pentium 1 you realise. pentium 2 and newer are 686.

It's actually an AMD-K6 but for some reason redhat terms it as a i586, even using the uname command (I think that was the command anyway). As a note my AMD processor is supposed to be a pentium II clone or equvalent or however you would term it. It is a 350mhz processor as well, if that helps. Thank you for your time.
