X86 refers to the Intel 386, 468, 586.. (x86) and it's clones. The x86 environment uses binaries compiled to work on your desktop computer.<br><br>Armel refers to the ARM processor line. The n800 uses an ARM11 processor, so the armel environment is for binaries compiled to run on the n800 and similar devices.
<br><br>QEMU has some trouble emulating certain ARM processors, so you may have trouble running armel binaries on your PC depending on which ARM architecture you compile for.<br><br>The armel binaries should run on your N800, though...
