You're right in saying that a P4/i586 is certainly an X86 machine.

Are you sure you didn't download the x86_64 CD image? That's the 64-bit
version of edubuntu. It might then complain about the cd being for X86_64
machines.

Default Edubuntu Install Issue

I am the IT Tech at a small K-12 school district. While we
are, I guess you could say, a Windows school, I have been experimenting with
various versions of Linux for a possible roll-out on some of our machines. Anyway,
I have found the Edubuntu product and was going to give it a try but when I go
to install it on a PC it tells me that the software I am using is for X86
machines and that I am running a machine with an i1586 processor. Both of the
machines that I have tried (A Dell GX240 and AcerPower F2) have P4 processors.
To my understanding, these should be considered an X86 architecture. Any help
with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
