TO my surprise Ubuntu chose to install the 386 series kernel. Wouldn't the 586 kernel be "better suited" to the M series chip or is there something I don't know about the M series requiring the more "generic" kernel?
I believe Ubuntu comes with only one generic kernel on the CD, so that is what it installs. There are more specific kernels available from the repository, but you have to install one yourself once the system is up and running.
