Well, turns out that my other Lubuntu candidate (A Compaq Armada 7800
running a PII/266) is i686-class despite being slower than the AMD, so
Lubuntu 10.10 should run OK on it, if I can manage to burn a Lubuntu
CD-R that it will read (the CDROM reader on this machine tends to be a
bit finicky, and it's old enough that I don't think that it will boot
from USB Flash).
If you’re having problems with the CD drive it may be worth looking at
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ which has a couple of ways of booting
flash drives, using either a floppy
Or use an existing grub2 menu and manually boot up the usb OS. Of course,
you can let the OS with the grub2 generate the usb OS menu with
update-grub (with the stick attached).
