I don't think it makes any difference now.  Years ago (not sure how 
many), there was both the 386 and 686 kernels and that was decided by 
the installer.  Now, the only possible difference if you aren't 
installing 64-bit is whether you get the PAE kernel or not.  And I don't 
know how that's decided or even if there is a choice.
