dude.... the i686 kernel works fine on P-2 / P-3 / P-4. there is _no_ 
code in CentOS3/i386 and CentOS4/i386 that wont run on a machine that is 
an i686 Arch type.

Unless you are talking about P-4's with EM64T / x8664. But I presume, 
knowing the system is a P-3, Tom didnt install x86_64 on there.

( I dont think you would even see the grub prompt in that case, but I 
havent tried running a x86_64 OS on a P-3 )
