That's a bummer.  I've never tried Linux with anything but "Genuine
Intel".  I would guess the "big" distros (Fedora, Suse, et. al.) would
be more likely to have maximum compatibility, but if all you're building
is a simple server (especially if you don't want X), I've had good luck
with the Trustix distribution.  But they are a bit CPU fussy (one of the
first I saw to be "Pentium Only"), so that might not work at all for

Somebody somewhere must have a distro that will run well on that
