Running an unsupported operating system is a really, really bad idea:

Just because there are no supported versions of Ubuntu that work on your computer, does not mean you are stuck with Ubuntu 10.04. There is Xubuntu 12.04 and Lubuntu 12.04 which support non-PAE CPUs. Have you tried those? There are also modern Linux distros that have been built from the ground up for older computers.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
