Yea I built it with a i686 base at the moment. I tried i586 before, but we 
found some problems. Should I rebuild one @ i586 or go lower? How about
a i586 and we find some other development for a i486 or special requirement
type of deal? I wanna take it to a fairly common level, but I hadn't planned 
on making a one size fits all type of cd. Unless others want to help make that
work, as I wouldn't have that type of time... :)
