I see lots of RPMs available, and used to just get the ones for .i386.rpm
for my Intel machines.  Now I am seeing .i386; .i586 and .i686 RPMs.  I'm
running mostly Pentium 233 MMX machines.  Which RPM should I be using?

I'm also finding an increasing number of really old RPMs at various download
sites.  How do I know I'm getting the most recent version?

Thanks,
Michael
