That's an Athlon chip, right? Probably 2.4.18-1-k7 is the "best"
pick, since it also includes a patch for the recent local-root exploit
that affected Debian, and it's the closest match for your processor.
-386 should always work, though.
(ObNitpick: AFAIK, only the Commodore 64 had a "kernal"; you could
install VICE to get one. :p JSR $FFD2, baby!)
