yeahh, the 32bit kernel is really a 486 because >>
Multi-core and multi-CPU support in 32-bit kernel:
To guarantee compatibility with non-PAE processors, the 32-bit versions of Linux Mint Debian come with a 486 kernel by default. This kernel does not support SMP, and as a consequence is only able to detect one core and one CPU. If your CPU has multiple cores, or if you have more than one CPU, simply install the 686-PAE kernel and reboot your computer.
and i had no change yet to say it: welcome to the team
