The SRPMS file is posted ... all that I changed in the spec file is the
line

# groups of related archs
%define all_x86 i386 i686 athlon

to

# groups of related archs
%define all_x86 i386 i586 i686 athlon

Then rebuild the SRPMS file with:

rpmbuild -bs kernel-2.4.spec

Then build the i586 RPMS seperately like this:

rpmbuild --rebuild --target i586 kernel-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.src.rpm

There is another section, that I didn't change, which prevents the smp
kernel from being made for i586. Are there any dual Pentium (non-i686)
boards?  If so, you could remove the lines:

%ifarch i586
%define buildsmp 0
%endif

to get a i586 smp kernel as well.....
