Good idea! I tried it and it turned out that neither the
2.6.24-19-server kernel (from 8.04.1) nor the 2.6.27-7-server kernel
(from 8.10) are able to boot on this damn Nemiah, even though they
claim that the intrepid kernel doesn't have any problems with the C3
CPUs on the devel mailing list and in the according launchpad bugfile
Looks like I'll stick to Debian on that machine then.
