Any distro for Intel-compatible processors works for AMD chips. Get the i386 version of Fedora from the download page. (http://fedora.redhat.com/download/)

Um, unless I'm wrong, all pentiums are 32 bit.
Hence any of the i386 distros should work, incl fedora 3 & 4

I think he's looking for 'optimized for AMD 32' rather than 'work with'.
I think you can build the kernel with AMD optimization, but everything I've heard is that speed increase is negligible, if any. Someone more knowledgeable should be able to answer this.

As far as I am aware, the AMD specific versions of the various distros dont really make the computer noticably faster. Any i386 based distro will work for a 32 bit chip.

If you really want speed, then try Gentoo where you compile everything from source. Or, if you don't feel like compiling all of your software, Arch is optimized for i686. Unfortunately, I do not know of a Linux distro that is specifically optimized for AMD CPUs.
