I have one of those VIA Epia boards with included CPU which can be used as i686 (without APIC Unit) or i586.
Currently the computer runs boinc on debian (which uses an i486-kernel; I don't have the desire to install gentoo on this slow machine again though it would be the best omptimized operating system).
The only tasks this machine computes without errors are AP26 Search tasks. I guess the other applications are optimized in an incompatible way.
Is there a way to configure this computer to only accept AP26 tasks? The project preferences only work globally for all computers I use, which isn't quite the solution for assigning tasks to special computers...

Under 'Preferences for this project' on your account page you can set up 4 different preferences: default, work, home & school.
Just pick one (other than default) and choose only AP26 work units.
Then under 'Computers on this account' you can view them, select 'Details' for that specific machine and change the 'Location' drop down to the preference you setup.
Best of luck,
Pete.
