    Installing Ubuntu Server on Xseries 232

    So we're installing Ubuntu Server 12.04 on an old server at work....I'm wondering if maybe the server is too old for this release? Its last use was in 1999, but would that matter too much? Ubuntu is pretty light and runs well on older machines. Anyway, it boots from live cd (Sorta) and after a while this error pops up. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xchexldzo9...003_154646.jpg
    Anyone know whats with that? Do I need an older version? Is there another problem with the hardware?

    Ok.....we got Ubuntu 10.10 to install ok but for some reason the lan wont work...Ive never come across this issue before on ubuntu. It could be that the lan just doesnt work on this machine, it was an old server we salvaged but it has 3 lan plugs so Id hope one of them worked lol. I also thought maybe since 10.10 was a little unstable that could be the problem. Since Ive never used xubuntu I thought I'd install the latest version and maybe my lan would work with 2 years worth of updates lol. Weird thing is, when I put in the CD, it just boots Ubuntu and doesnt even try to boot from the live cd.
    I have the machine set to boot from cd first priority.

    10.10 has reached EOL. Whether you choose ubuntu or xubuntu go with either 10.04 or 11.10 as suggested in the above link.

    You're right it is a P3. It has two actually lol. So it wouldnt have support for ubuntu at all?

    Edit: Never mind, I read the link you gave, thanks.
