  1. Difference in i386, i586, and i686?

    I'm now signed up with a third-party service to get me RH9 updates
    post April EOL timeframe. The kernel update, however, threw me for a
    loop. It has versions for i386, i586, and i686. How can I determine
    which one to use? Is there a command I can type on RH9 Linux to tell
    me this?

    'uname -m' will tell you what the CPU is.
