Yes, it's useful.  i586, as mentioned already in the thread, is needed for Geode support, as well as VIA C3 support.  I have a number of Chompers and Sharptooth boxes lying around that make good embedded systems, with decent amounts of RAM and disk.  I also have a few C3 systems, and getting CentOS 5 on them would be nice.  Not critical, but nice.  Expecially the Nomadix hotspot gateway box, which has multiple 10/100 ports and a very low power setup with decent RAM....
