I searching to find information about my CPU type.
i have this: CPU: Mobile AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 2800+ (1600.06-Mhz 686-class

I'ts i686 (686-class) or i386 ?

"i386" is the architecture;  it includes all the similar processors including 
the 486, Pentiums, Athlon, etc.   Other architectures are completely different hardware, 
eg Sun's SPARC.

The 686-class is the specific processor within the i386 architecture.  if you 
look in /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf you'll see a list of options for 
CPUTYPE.  athlon-xp might be the closest to your cpu.  However, some folks here 
recommend against using overly specific cpu optimization.  You can go safe and 
just use pentium4
