Yes, you are right. It is a 486DX4, 12 MB RAM Not sure of clock speed. 
The computer was a cast-away I picked up for the equivalent of US$25 
and added a newer VESA I/O card, 6MB HDD and VGA monochrome 
monitor). The HDD is the only "new" item, i.e. bought brand-new within 
the last 12 months.

So how do I remedy this? Something to do with compiling the kernel?
