I'll keep an eye on this issue especially with the possibility of lower end
systems being resurrected to run a single or pair of small current-era
virtual machines.

This is a kernel issue with Ubuntu 6.10 running on M, C3 and some other
processors. I have a laptop with an M here. If I have some time this weekend
I will try do a custom kernel as a boot option and hopefully that fixes it.

"This is because the 2.6.17-10-server kernel is compiled with HIGHMEM64G
support, which requires PAE, but the Via C3 processor used on most Epias does
not support PAE. You will have to use a kernel without HIGHMEM64G support
(HIGHMEM4G will work, as will NOHIGHMEM).

The same problem occurs on certain Pentium M CPUs. Most other CPUs since
Pentium Pro support PAE."
