Thanks in advance.
What is a "melt the planet" processor, and better yet, where can I get one?
There is no different "dual core" or SMP architecture type. You either have 32 bit, 64 bit or ppc for those Mac people...You want the i386 or, as it is labeled for the live CDs, the i686. It is the same architecture type.
edit: BTW, before you waste much time, you better check the minimum specs section. Fedora, actually most modern Linux distros, require fairly modern hardware, at least within the last 8 years anyway.
