I am trying to install ubuntu on an old computer it has a amd 64fx 4800+ on a Foxconn_NF4UK8AA motherboard with a nvidia 7300 video card 2 160gb sata HD's and a PATA Dvd RW. I have installed the 11.10 i386 but the processor speed reads at only 1ghz but it does read both cores. I have tried to install the x64 version bot 11.10 and the long term support but both hang on the cd startup. is there some bios setting that i need to change to let the OS properly read the speed, and is there something i can do to get the x64 version installed?
