  486/P5 are both pipelined CPU's and in general, P5 optimized code will
run great on a 486. There will be a penalty for those running on 386's,
but honestly, who runs OS/2, Win95, or Win95 on a 386? Linux maybe... but
only if your into pain. :) And if there is someone that does, the P5
optimized code will run, but not as fast it could be.
