    i386 distroes of linux are for 32 bit x86 architecture PCs.
    x86-64 Linux Distroes are for 64 bit processored PCs.

    x86-64 is the 64 bit platform developed by AMD < http://www.x86-64.org/ > .... this site aims to provide support and porting various Unix flavors to AMD's 64bit platform

    i386 is intel's family of processors...
