185Previously, such a profile was barely touched by the user. However, x86, hppa
186and alpha users can choose between two profiles, one for a 2.4 kernel and one
187for a 2.6 kernel. This requirement has been imposed to improve the integration
188of the 2.6 kernels. The ppc and ppc64 architectures have several profiles
189available as well. We will talk about those later.
