Hi All, has anyone tried to boot a Ubuntu Server live DVD / CD for the
above CPU, I managed to get knoppix to boot and I see the following details
on the CPU (using "lscpu"):

Architecture: i686
CPU(s): 1
Threads: 1
Cores: 1
CPU sockets: 1
Vendor Id: CentaurHauls
CPU family: 6
Model: 9
Stepping: 5
CPU Mhz: 1002.291

A bit of googling shows older release like 9.04 were ok with supporting
this but not later versions. Im thinking maybe I could boot the server DVD
and then go on to install it if I had the right kernel parameters?

Any advice would be appreciated
