Hi, there:
I have a dual core computer with 3 GB of physical memory. I want to install the latest Fedora 8, which version should I install? Should it be i386, x86_64 or ppc?

Thanks
Robert

Hello:
Assuming your processor is 64bit capable, then you can either install the i386 [32bit version] or x86_64 [64 bit].

See the following for a further explanation :
