The organization of cache memeory in the 486 and Pentium class is called 4 way set associative cache. Which means cache is split into four blocks. Each block is also  organized as 128 or 256 lines of 16 bytes each.
Basically its like using a bookmark in a book.
Each of the four blocks stores different lines of memory this is esppecially important in the windows environment where the processor has to operate on different areas of memory simultaneously.
