Ubuntu Server and VIA C3 (particularly: Nemiah)

The -server Kernel in Ubuntu seems to have had problems with some VIA C3
CPUs which do not support the "cmov" command for a long time, i.e. they
didn't boot. That made it pretty hard to install Ubuntu Server on
machines with those CPUs. I had that problem with 8.04 Server.

At the launchpad site for the bug some people claim that this is fixed
in Ubuntu 8.04.1 and 8.10 [1].

My question: Has anyone successfully installed Ubuntu Server 8.04.1 or a
current Beta of 8.10 on a VIA Nemiah based system?

Thanks in advance!
