Hi, I've succesfully confirmed (I think!) that my new server is a Sempron64, but it's my first time
with one of these CPUs. I'm planning to setup a courier-mta mail server.

Could you please help me to decide on stage and cflags to use? I was planning on these CFLAGS, but I
believe the stage3 should be amd64 isntead of i686 (yeah, sounds stupid, but I really want to be
sure, as this server is on a different country).

CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -mmmx -msse -msse2 -msse3"

Of ocurse, I have to change the -march parameter to something else, for example:

http://gentoo-wiki.com/Safe_Cflags#Sempron.2FSempron64_.28AMD.29

CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"
CFLAGS="-march=athlon64 -msse3 -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"

Should I add -mmmx, -msse, -msse2 too?

Which stage3 should I use?

This is the output of cpuinfo and lspci:

Any other recommendation, comment, or url you can point me to?

Sorry to bother you people with these, but I'm not a hardware guy, and my googling is starting to
confuse me. Sorry, but thanks in advance.
