	  This is the processor type of your CPU. This information is used for
	  optimizing purposes. In order to compile a kernel that can run on
	  all x86 CPU types (albeit not optimally fast), you can specify
	  "386" here.

	  The kernel will not necessarily run on earlier architectures than
	  the one you have chosen, e.g. a Pentium optimized kernel will run on
	  a PPro, but not necessarily on a i486.

	  Here are the settings recommended for greatest speed:
	  - "386" for the AMD/Cyrix/Intel 386DX/DXL/SL/SLC/SX, Cyrix/TI
