precompiled Athlon optimized kernel
I dont't know if any of you other linux noobs have ever tried recompiling your kernel, but I found it to be pretty daunting and found I screwed up my install doing it. However, I just noticed that RedHat has listed for download here a pre-compiled, Athlon optimised version of the kernel. Just download it, hit upgrade in your package manager and reboot and your're golden.
Yep, it's the easy way out though...
EDIT: cause it's spelled kernel not kernal.

Whoa!! Thanks for the tip. I"m getting ready to install 7.3 soon and would like to see what kind of improvements you get with an optimized Kernel.

Well, I've finally found the time to get RH 7.3 installed and the first time I went to RHN the first update was the Athlon kernel. The architecture is called ATHLON instead of i386 or anything like that. That's what tipped me off to it. I usually don't do kernel upgrades but I did that one...
