Hi Janne

I do not know if I can help you very much. but I will see what I can do.

1. If you have any extra ram sticks lying around then wack them in. The 
more ram the faster the install goes.

2. Make sure that it is connected to the network. DHCP tends to take 
awile to find.

3. I have installed Ubuntu on dual processor mainboards with 1 processor 
in them quite sucessfully. Best bet is to go into bios and disable 
anything that is not in use (ie like scsi controllers, on board sound 
cards, basically anything that you don't need on the machine.) I did try 
once to do a dual 350mhz install with warty but it did not succeed.

I am sorry that I cannot tell you more.
