You don't need to recompile the kernel for CPU support, we have
CONFIG_X86_GENERIC=y set and that pretty much handles optimizations for
different CPU's. PENTIUMII setting is the minimum supported CPU that is in the
İf you want to manually compile your kernel, you should checkout
http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2008/kernel/ , change the default config that
is set with the patch in the files folder and do a "pisi -d build" and build
