Fedora Installation question.

Hello All,

I've just tried to install the new version of Fedora on AMD K6 400MHZ, When I boot the image cd from the cd, Fedora starts with the countdown.
When the machine tries to reboot it gives me an error :

"This Kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU:

Unable to boot- Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

Can you guys explain me how I can fix this error to install this O/S?

There is any way I can fix this??

Please let me know

The default kernel that comes with Fedora 12 requires CMOV support in the CPU.
Your CPU does not support this.

Get a new CPU or use a different distribution or older version.
