Hello everyone. I have this maybe rediculous question but since I
have no clue about system programming I can only ask. I have this CPU
K6 III+ that AMD released for mobile systems although they work on
desktops too. This is the last CPU AMD released before the Athlon
family and in several reviews I've seen that K6 III has almost the
same instruction set as the Athlon. The question comes: Is it a good
idea to specify Athlon in the 2.4 kernel CPU selection menu although
this is sa K-6 family? Or I should go with K6 just to avoid any
I would really appreciate a reply on my question
