Nope. Pentium Pro(i686) or higher. I tried to install 11.0 on a
K6-2 and it refused, because it said that i586 is not supported by
the current kernel.

Really? That surprises me - I was sure the minimum was still i586.

Have just checked the boxed version of 11.0 and 11.1 - minimum is still
Pentium I, whereas AMD K6 is not specifically mentioned. I also
started a network install of 11.0 on my Pentium 133MHz with 128Mb - no
complaints, still running. Just for the hell of it, I think I'll try
11.1 too.
