Red Hat 7.3 installed the Athlon kernel. I have never experienced any problems
using the Athlon kernels on my system.

Confirming. Athlon kernel was not installed for my 1.33Ghz Athlon Thunderbird,
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-07-25 01:58:02 EDT
Should be fixed in newer trees
Comment 3 Jim Hayward 2002-08-27 05:24:11 EDT
A clean install of "null" still results in the i686 kernel being installed
instead of the athlon kernel.
