We had today that kind of problem on #lubuntu channel.
Here's the problem line:

Thu16:05 <xxxxxx> I have an older Compaq 500 Mhz 512MB RAM 80GB HDD.
I've installed Xubuntu but it seems to be using up too many resources.
Someone suggested I try Lubuntu. When I burned a CD and tried though, it
says I lack 'cmov' and to try another kernel. Any suggestions?

And we discussed with phillw about this issue and we were sure it was
becouse of 10.10 is i686 and his CPU is i585.

You can try with USB stick if 10.10 works, but I doubt.
