The certs are very different. An instructor can instruct, but a divemaster cannot.
For some agencies there is also an Assistant Instructor, that is midway between the two.
Also, keep in mind that a Divemaster cert is not the same as a Master Diver cert.
In the LA County system there is no Divemaster cert - there are only the Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and Instructor certs. To give a taste, the training for the LA County Advanced (via the ADP http://lascuba.com/adp.html) fulfills all the requirements for the NAUI AOW, Rescue and Master Diver certs.
So the meaning of the certs really depends on the agency.
Confused yet? ;)
