I also have a Celeron 600 in my Compaq 5000, but even with the output
below, I am not sure this is what Linus is talking about! I believe
Linus is trying to say, "We HAVE configurations set for that specific
architecture, so please USE them." However, I suppose you are saying you
will get better performance from selecting PIII due to this output? Let
me know ...

jrose$ cat /proc/info

processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 8
model name : Celeron (Coppermine)
stepping : 3
cpu MHz : 598.064
cache size : 128 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 2
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat
pse36 mmx fxsr sse
bogomips : 1192.76

Cheers,
