Clash with AMD?

I'm putting together a comp so I can run Linux (my bf refuses to use it). However, I hear that there's a conflict when using the AMD K6 processor. I have a Pentium MMX (original) and an AMD K6-2 to choose from. The K6 appears to have a higher processor speed, but I'm worried about having conflicts with my processor.
