What's the difference between ia32 package and x86 package?
 
I am puzzled: what is the difference between those two packages:

Linux Grafiktreiber - IA32
Version: 1.0-8776
Betriebssystem: Linux IA32
Veröffentlichungsdatum: 19.10.2006

and

Linux Grafiktreiber - x86
Version: 1.0-9629
Betriebssystem: Linux x86
Veröffentlichungsdatum: 7.11.2006


Is it just a chance in names? Will the IA32 packages be called X86 packages from now on or are there more differences? Which package am I supposed to use on an AthlonXP machine? :confused:

Generally speaking IA32 is the same as x86.
