I have currently a Pentium 66 running a thin client XDMCP mandriva setup. and 
i don't want to lose support for it.

It works perfectly for what it is designed for.

there is absolutely no reason to have everything compiled for i686 since it 
provides no measurable difference in speed/efficiency. and why excluding those; 
if you really want it like that, check out that guy that installed Mandriva in 
the gentoo way (from compiling the src.rpm's), that way you can have any flags 
you want.)

I will not say anything else on this subject.

Kind regards,
