Huh? It's only our default kernel on our official ISO images and CDs
that requires at least a Pentium clone. Of course, the kernel will need
to be built for the specific hardware, but:
The i386 userland packages that we distribute are in fact supposed to
work on anything i386 and up (or we would not be calling them i386). If
anyone actually tries this out, please let us know.
