[OT?] Question on CPU compatability

Thanks to the people who confirmed the K6 as being Pentium (i586), not 
Pentium Pro (i686) compatible.  A friend of mine had been wondering whether 
he'd be able to install my binaries on an old K6.  Alas, it sounds like 
he'll either have to upgrade or compile them himself.

Thanks again!
