Kernel Images

I've been hearing a lot lately about using the "i686" and "k7"  
kernels instead of the default "i386".
I was just wondering, what kernel is best for what systems?

For example, I have a Pentium 4 (1.7 GHz) system with 256MB RAM,  
160GB Hard Drive space, and both WinXP and Ubuntu installed.  Which  
kernel image would be best for me?
