Almost, but not quite, true. If you look at the files on the first
distribution CD, you'll notice that there are two sets of kernels, smp
and not-smp. Each set has a 586 and a 686 version. The appropriate one
will be installed.
If you have a Pentium II or higher, then the 686 version will be
installed. If you then move that drive to a machine which only has the
586 instruction set, it's not going to work.
