If my memory serves, Mandrake is compiled to utilise hardware from
Pentium and up.
If your computer uses CPU which does not comply with those - bad luck!!
Other distributions run, at least the installation part, with kernels
compiled for i386 and higher CPU's. You install on anything from 386 up
and later compile for yourself a kernel to use the super-duper CPU that
sits in your box.
So get a real distro.(notice I don't mention names)
