The game will run on anything AMD that is an Athlon or better. There's an
amd64-specific version on the disc for people running 64-bit OSes, too.

The game will NOT run on pre-Athlon chips, like the AMD-K6-3, since we
have gcc generating pentiumpro-specific instructions (it's not specific
assembly we wrote, it's just what the compiler spits out with the compile
options we use).

The next game will almost certainly use gcc's pentium3 options, which will
shut out the original Athlon (but not Athlon XP/MP/64/etc). Please try to
upgrade your machine in the next few years.  :)
