Which optimized stage3 should i use?

Question

Hello, I'm wanting to install funtoo on another PC

of mine it's a Hp a1473w model from like 2005,

i can't decide if i should use the generic64 kernel

or the pentium4 kerne;l 32 bit, any advice would be helpful

here is the stats of the PC:

change the title to "which optimized stage3 should i use"

 

funtoo is a boot loader, a stage3, & a kernel.

 

i know there is a little bit of guesswork in this part of the documentation, ive looked at resolving it and dont see an easy way to do so.

 

i would go with pentium 4 64bit....  it looks like your system supports that.
