When I am ready, I will put up a repository of archlinux for VIA i586/C3 that 
I use, so that others can have it too. My VIA machine is my internet server.

I call it i586, although it is not exactly that. i686 is assumed to include 
the optional instruction cmov, which the VIA C3 does not have. So I will 
build i586 assuming that it includes the optional mmx and 3dnow, since the 
VIA has it. Is there anyone who runs a real i586 at all?
