2nd section - Fedora Desktop Live Media (http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora) What are your computer specs? I would guess you need i686.

Sorry for the confusion. You must have a rather old computer as I believe AMD discontinued their Am386 processors in the mid 1990's (replaced with Am486, then Am5x86...). If you do have an older computer that has an Am386 I do not believe the i686 Live CD will work.

Which "i386 amd" is it? If it's an Athlon or Duron, you can use the i686 LiveCD.

AMD hasn't made any over 3GHz 32-bit processors. Either you have a 64-bit processor or you are confusing the "performance rating" with the clock frequency.
