Maybe I just need a refresher history lesson - which Intel processors 
would be identified as a i586?  I ran uname -p on a Pentium II and
it still says i686.  Now I just ran uname -a on a 166 Mhz Pentium and
it says i586.

In this case I misspoke earlier when I said I had 6.1.1 running on a 
i586 - I'm only running it on a Pentium III or better - I forgot how 
long ago the world went i686, and I've owned just about every CPU since
the 8088 (I even had a 80186 in a HP palmtop).
