The 80386. Though the 8086 can be programmed in C, C++, Pascal, Assembler. Go to Intel's site and found more about the models.

BTW, your post should be in the general forum because your post is not a Linux hardware problem.

Agreed, this is much more of a general interest question than it is a specific Linux question -- J.W.

You don't need the names of the registers needed by the stack, just do a push and pop on assembly level if you want to use it directly.
