10.04: ... not available for this type of computer (i386)

Yesterday I did the upgrade from 9.10 to 10.4 on an older laptop:
HP Omnibook vt6200. But, it's not THAT old...
There was no battery monitor in the tray. So, I went into the Ubuntu
Software Center to see what battery applets were available.
Many of the options were tagged with:
"... not available for this type of computer (i386)"
Looking at other 'not installed' application reveal the same msg.
Huh? Why does the Ubuntu 10.04 believe this is a 386?
Grepping in `dmesg` gives no hints.
However, `uname` claims "i686" (and kernel 2.6.32-22).
Where should I start looking?
Thanks for any help,
