kernel should be obvious
PAE stands for Physical Address Extension -- it's a trick to allow x86 
architectures access >4GB. If you have x64 capable hardware, x86_64 
version is recommended.
devel means it's a development package - it has all necessary sources to 
build the package
2.6.33.6 is the mainline kernel version
147.2.4 is the fedora/redhat version of the package (built with all 
patches, etc.)
fc13 means it's a package for Fedora 13.
and, finally, i686 is the hardware architecture this package is meant for
