Perhaps it would be worth mentioning (in /ports/index.html) a few
processors supported by the i386 port. You could adapt the text from the
kernel's Configure.help:

Intel or compatible 80x86 processor
  This is Linux's home port.  Linux was originally native to the Intel
  386, and runs on all the later x86 processors including the Intel
  486, 586, Pentiums, and various instruction-set-compatible chips by
  AMD, Cyrix, and others.
