Where can I find some explanation about which stage should be used with which architecture?

I want to install Gentoo on a Laptop with a Pentium M processor. Should I use the i686 or the pentium4 stage?

If "cat /proc/cpuinfo" doesn't show that it's a Pentium 4 Mobile you should not use Pentium 4.

Rather stick with 686 or Pentium 3 (that's what i use)

[EDIT]If you're going for a stage 1 - install you can use
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CFLAGS="-march=pentium-m"

i have to correct my last statement:
CFLAGS="-march=pentium-m" isn't supported by the LiveCD-gcc-Version

unless you have an installation or LiveCD with >gcc-3.4.* you have to stick to:
CFLAGS="-march=pentium3" until you upgraded gcc to a version higher than 3.4.*
