RE: Scheduler?

PC-BSD is using ULE scheduler from versions 1.1 and is optimized for 686 processors (all support for 386, 486 and 586 microcode is disabled in kernel). I think AMD K6-2 is 586 processor and it may not work (not sure, I have no such a system to test). My old IBM ThinkPad 570E with Celeron 500MHz works just fine (first 686 processor is PentiumPro).
