I have a K5-PR133 and the only problem I have is Netscape. If I compile my
kernel for Pentium of PPro, then Netscape won't run, however, if I use 386, it
works fine. If I use Pentium or PPro, Netscape just turns into a zombie
process and does nothing. However, that may be because 2.0 kernels don't
exactly have support for the 430VX chipset, which I have on my motherboard,
because Netscape works fine on a 2.1 kernel (with 430VX support) on my system.
