yup, i'm pretty sure that's correct

don't forget about 'noarch' ... many-a-time i've compiled one of RH's
redhat-config-* python apps and freaked because it wasn't in the i386 folder
only to remember it got put in noarch
also, in MDK, it's /usr/src/RPM (i can't remember if whoever started this
thread said which rpm-based distro they're using)...

the most common on an x86 platform are i386 (RH's default), i586 (MDK's
default), i686 and athlon... they do have an i486, but i can't think of
anywhere i've actually seen a .i486.rpm file...
also, personally (based on experience and reading) i suggest using -Uvh instead
of -ivh... incase your trying to install an upgraded package, it will just
upgrade it... if not, it just installs it...
