linux-image-386 kernel for x86 routers

Hi all,

I wanted to upgrade my Alix router to the latest Ubuntu Server version.

On my ALIX router ( I had installed a
Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS. The AMD Geode CPU of the router doesn't
work with generic Linux kernels, but instead needs the Ubuntu kernel:
linux-image-386 (the kernel for Intel 386 compatible CPUs).

The problem is that in Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 linux-image-386 doesn't
exist any more... My request is: Can someone set up a PPA for
Ubuntu 11.04 and maybe even reconsider to ship a
386 kernel in the main repository for Ubuntu Oneiric.
