	This is your BogoMIPS, it is an evaluation of the speed of your
computer, it is not the exact value, here 6.58 MHz very slow ?..  
And memory is 12 Mo ?

After this the kernel test the pocessor, end there is a problem, he is
searching for a 
Pentium pro, and I think it is not. Compile your kernel for your
processor (386, 486, 586/K5/5x86/6x86 ou Pentium/K6/TSC)
