Bug Description

The natty bzr branch of the installation guide says:

"However, Debian GNU/Linux maverick will not run on 386 or earlier processors."
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/natty/installation-guide/natty/annotate/head:/en/hardware/supported/i386.xml

The Maverick release notes say:

"With 10.10 we have also dropped support for i586 and lower processors, as well as i686 processors without cmov support."
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MaverickMeerkat/ReleaseNotes#Linux kernel 2.6.35

Having read both these documents it's far from clear if Maverick onwards will run on i486 and i586 processors. If someone clarifies that I am happy to submit a patch to the installation guide.
