if there is a way to "simulate" missing opcodes in the kernel - that would
be great also. I dont care if there is a performace hit.

I am looking for a way to run the 686 centos on a 486 machine.
I was hoping I could just recompile the kernel as 486 and any libraries
would not be using MMX/SSE etc...

Looking for any solution.
