AMD unfortunately chose to be confusing with the Semprons... there are
two completely different beasts.
1. Socket A Sempron
This is basically a renamed Duron. The usual thing - little older
Athlon XP designs, or rather current designs with the cache cut in half.
2. Socket 754 Sempron
This is an Athlon64 with some stuff disabled, and if memory serves less
One of the disabled things are the 64bit extensions. so your machine is
not an amd64, it is a plain i386.

hmm i think a 2600+ was supposed to run at ~2ghz, you might have the
FSB speed wrong in the bios, but you better check the desired
frequencies before blindly increasing.

Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
