FC4 doesn't use RHN for updates. Most people find yum to work better for
them. The update icon is known to be broken.

And there are no Athlon-specific kernels any more. The Athlon is *very*
good at re-ordering programs (and kernels) the way it wants, so there's
no inherent performance advantage. And the few areas where an Athlon
likes to be configured differently are now detected at run-time: the
support is in the normal i686 kernel.

Hope this helps,
