Since we already support the CPU architecture, it should only be a matter of
driver support in order for Ubuntu to run on this system (it shouldn't
require a separate port). There is already some Pegasos-specific code in
the kernel, though I don't know how complete it is.
Have you tried installing Ubuntu on such a machine yet?
