SubjectAMD586/133 choose 486 or Pentium???
Can anyone recommend the correct/preferred selection for "Processor type" 
(CONFIG_M386) when compiling for the AMD P75 aka AMD-586/133?

As far as I know, this chip is not a Pentium clone, but just a juiced up
486. However, will the kernel run better if I select Pentium?

I ask this question because of the following lines in
