Just a quick note with what my actual install on a Sempron 64 bit
shows on dmesg:
CPU: AMD Hammer Family processor - Model Unknown (1603.65-MHz K8-class CPU)
  Origin = "AuthenticAMD"  Id = 0x20fc2  Stepping = 2
  AMD Features=0xe2500800<SYSCALL,NX,MMX+,<b25>,LM,3DNow+,3DNow>

If anyone can tell me what info I need to give to identify the cpu
I'll be quite happy to find out, FYI mine's a Sempron 2800+ 64 bit
