All Intel CPUs from the PPro onward, the AMD Athlon onwards, and the
Via C7 Onwards support PAE. I think that to have a proc classified as
i686 it has to support PAE(which is probably why the K6 series isn't
classed as i686 and the current stuff won't install on them).

The DVD and the NET install are both set to handle i586 and will install on K6
CPUs. Only the LiveCD variations are specifically set for i686.

I have an ancient laptop with a K6, which is why I'm familiar with this topic.
