Hmmmm, a MMX 233 is a 686 processor which came both as a socket 7 or a slot 1 configuration. But they did make a 233 P1 socket 7 non MMX processor, so be sure which ones you have.
586 processors stopped with P1 and the MMX processor is a PII. However the Pentium Pro processors are also 686 processors.
I personally ran the above kernel for quite a while on a dual PII 333 system and it is a nice kernel to run that way because different processes go to different processors. So no matter how busy the system gets it is still very responsive. Also with the Triton hard drive chipset you will want to download and install the full hdparm binary to configure the hard drive for better throughput.

However this kernel cannot run :(
Stopped without any error.

Used grub4dos and two Pentium MMX 166Mhz overcloced to 233 :) (worked 10 year) uptime very long... :)
