yes you are very likely right ... I've found relevant info here:
Support for multiple architectures:
Intel X86, Intel Itanium, AMD AMD64 and IBM zSeries, POWER Series, and
S/390. (With Update 2, delivered in May 2004, support for Intel EM64T
K6 is NOT mentioned... but on other side RHEL supports X86
and K6 is i586 architecture ( which belongs to X86)
