Thats your problem...

I think the default is i686 these days, and the K6-II is a sort of i586+

you should probably run through the other options too - for example,
enable ide-scsi support and scsi-generic if you have a CDRW drive, or
turn of the myriad IDE bugfixes for machines you probably dont own.
