:-D I did not hit reply all and then sent it to sounder by mistake. Then 
I forwarded that back here. My apologies.

Pentium the Original. Pentium II, III are all based on the Pentium Pro 
(i686) and they have a different architecture than Pentium the Original. 
Pentium II is basically the Pentium Pro + MMX. Pentium 4 and M use the 
Netburst architecture which is again different from the Original.
