What is your reason for wanting to use the 686 kernel in the first  
place. The reason I removed 686 support from the X2Go TCE is that it

  (a) did not bring any feelable improvements while my TCEs ran under  
Debian squeeze _and_
  (b) did not work fluently if the PXE server machine is a amd64 system

Please enlight me, why 686 would be a sensible kernel alternative to  
use here...
