    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

If it is already compiled it isn't optimized for your system. A good thing to do is print the documentation and follow it line by line when installing
    Not really. If he downloads the P3 stage2 files they're already pre-bootstrapped for a P3. Hence he won't really get ANYthing out of bootstrapping.

    If he uses the x86 tarballs, however, he WILL get some optimizations.
