actually, you have a 386 compatible uP. it does several P5 things but
doesn't do that 100%. a few instructions don't seem to be of importance
because of the hardware setup.

theer is a patch available against a pretty recent kernel that does add some
nexgen support. look at www.cantrip.org/ncm.html. there also is a developers
mailing list available.
