Key: "i386" refers to the Intil 80386 CPU. Distributions that support this platform can be used on PCs with any Intel x86-compatible processor including 386, 486, 586 (Pentium™), AMD, and Cyrix. "x86_64" = "AMD64" = AMD's 64-bit PC platform, which is NOT compatible with Intel's Itanium™ architecture, but which is compatible with the x86 architecture. "PPC" is short for PowerPC, the processors in Apple iBook and Powerbook, G4 and G5.
If there's a distribution you want that is not listed above and you lack the bandwidth and/or burning facilities to make your own disks, feel free to make a special request. We'll see what we can do.
