Question Federal good time

I've read two separate things about good time, the first is an excerpt from the A&O handbook for FMC Carswell where I'll be in about 30 days:

THE GOOD TIME DISCUSSIONS BELOW DO NOT APPLY TO INMATES SENTENCED UNDER THE NEW SENTENCING GUIDELINES.
Statutory Good Time Under 18 U.S. Code 4161, an offender sentenced to a definite term of six months or more is entitled a deduction from his term, computed as follows, if the offender has faithfully observed the rules of the institution and has not been disciplined.
Not greater than one year - 5 days for each month of the not less than six months or more than one year sentence.
More than I year, less than 3 years - 6 days for each month of the stated sentence.
At least 3 years, less than 5 years - 7 days for each month of the stated sentence.
At least 5 years, less than 10 years - 8 days for each month of the stated sentence.
10 years or more - 10 days for each month of the stated sentence.
At the beginning of a prisoner's sentence, the full amount of statutory good time is credited, subject to forfeiture if the prisoner commits disciplinary infractions.


So my question is, will this apply to me? and if not, what are the "new sentencing guidelines" that determine my good time? Thanks for any help you can give with this!!
