I think the problem isn't

I tried to install with a rw-cd from xubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso and
couldn't install, because of "Critical temperature reached (121C),
shutting down"

Since this is an old test machine, I have Opensuse 11.2 installed too. I
could finish the install with Opensuse, but after a while I got the same
message and the machine halted. Actually the bios means that everything
is ok with the temperature (below 50°C). With Suse 11.2 I use

So I assume it is a general kernel problem. Here are more details of the machine:

I also think there is a problem with the installer of
xubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso. I couldn't install yesterday with the
dvd-rom. When I try to install from the SCSI-burner the system boots,
but then /dev/sr0 cannot be found. It looks like it works best with
/dev/sr2. I will try again when it is cooler. I think the room
temperature is hard on the limit to work or not to work.
