Hi Lars,

With such and old processor (only 900 MHz), we cannot be sure that there
is PAE capability. Try with a non-pae kernel - and a very light-weight

ToriOS, Wary Puppy, TahrPup, Tiny Core.

If you want to try 14.04 LTS, I suggest that you try with something with
Phill's non-pae kernel, for example


according to


A 12.04 LTS non-pae mini.iso can be found here


5a7184d44475a6581a33307b753ca393  ./netboot/non-pae/mini.iso


You might have to connect an old CD drive, or install into the HDD in
another computer and take advantage of the portability of linux.

Best regards
