SRPM stands for Source RPM. It is basically only sourceRPM file and when you install it and it gets installed like an RPM file, but it goes into a predefined directory from where you compile the sources it extracts, just like any *.tar.gz or other source files.

i386 stands for Intel 32 plateform of processors and like p3 p4 and that also includes athlon, athlonxp.

Just go to i386 and download the iso for it if you have any of those processors.

BTW the CD you will generate from those ISO's will still have few packages in SRPM. But all you need to worry right now is i386&RPM.
