Fedora or other distro optimized for i686 or athlon-xp
I want to download or compile a distro optimized for i686 or athlon-xp. There seems to be lots of related discussion on this subject, but I cannot seem to find exactly what I am looking for. Preferably, I'd like to go with Fedora Core 2. If I download the source RPMs, am I basically stuck manually compiling each package in the entire distro to get an optimized FC2 package? Or is there some better way? Or does anyone provide precompiled i686/athlon-xp ISOs that are equivalent to the standard i386 installation ISOs provided by RH/FC?
BTW, I have compiled Gentoo optimized for athlon-xp, but about once a week something would break and I just got sick of the continual fixing. Eventually I capitulated and went back to RH/FC. I find FC just feels good. I may return to Gentoo once it is more mature.
