i586


When I boot/reboot the Red Hat 7.1 I see on the screen the Kernel model and i586. What i586 stands for?

why do people ask the same questions again and again?

i586 = intel 586 compliant processor, which is pentiums and up, and AMD equivalents.

Therefore, I can't install the Red Hat 7.1 on Motorolla processors. Right?
