ppc = PowerPC ? Presumably your looking at the RPM's ? In that case you
wanna grab the i386, which is for i386 architecture machines (386's,
486's, pentiums, AMD's etc). i386 will run on anything from a 386
upwards. However if you have a look at the contrib sites
(ftp://ftp.iol.ie/mirrors/RedContrib for example) you can sometimes find
program recompile for pentium (i586) and pentium-II (i686) architectures.
