Kernel vs Hardware

i386 is the lowest common denominator, built only with the instruction set for
the old 80386, which everything supports.
I really don't know how kernels work these days, with all this
new "linux-image-generic" and stuff flying around. I have no idea, and I
didn't find an easy reference quickly. If you really care, you'll have to do
your own homework.
In the meantime, you can stop worrying about a mismatch. Your system will run
fine. I used to screw around with kernels to optimize everything perfectly
for my specific hardware. Two things resulted from that. First, there was
never any performance gain I could detect with the naked eye, so to speak.
Second, if my mobo fried and I had to move my hard drive to a different
computer, I now had a pain in the ass to deal with.
You're probably fine like you are.
