If you use "make menuconfig" when configuring your kernel it is
"Processor type and features" and then "Processor family"

You can check if you have sse support compiled in your kernel with
cat /proc/cpuinfo
One of the lines will look like this:
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse
My kernel has support for sse  ----------------------------------------------------------------/
