Question Building from src rpm's...Which Architechture?

Hi, I'm running Redhat 8.0 with kernel version 2.4.18-19.8.0 so obvioulsy I've rebuilt my nvidia drivers from the source rpm's to work with my kernel....anyway....

When I boot into redhat, the login prompt tells me that I'm running redhat on an i686, however I'm actually running it on an athlon(K7 @ 1000Mhz to be exact, NOT a thunderbird).

As I'm typing this, my system has the driver rebuilt for athlon architechture installed, and running nicely.

However, I was wondering if anyone could tell me wether or not I should build them for an i686 architechture, since that's what redhat is telling me I am running.

Basically, I just need to know which architechture to install to get the best performance out of my system.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
