Duron and kernel-image-2.4.18-k6 - OK?

On a fresh Debian 3.0 stable (Woody) AMD Duron 700Mhz system I just completed:

apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-k6

Got this after rebooting:

Linux test4 2.4.18-k6 #1 Sun Apr 14 12:43:22 EST 2002 i686 unknown

It seems to be working but this is a new system and I can't really put it 
through any tough paces yet.  Was k6 the right selection for a Duron? STFW 
tells me the k6 != Duron != k7 (Athlon).

Is the k6 package providing some additional pcmcia modules? (see apt-cache 
output below)  I have a desktop system with no pcmcia, so maybe the k6 stuff 
doesn't even matter in my case?

Thanks for any advice.
