Ahm, so I should *not* use the i586 pxeboot kernel on a Pentium III (3)? I 
saw that it's new in addition to the normal kernel in the pxeboot 
directory. If the i586 is *only* for i586, then I'm better off to use the 
normal kernel on a Pentium III and newer? I'm using the pxeboot kernel 
just to start a remote VNC installation.
