    Celeron 2.40 Ghz Not Compatible??

    I've websearched this all over and can't get the skinny:
    this is an old "learner" system that I have Windows 8 [early] Developer Preview installed on. It worked ok.
    I tried to install RP today both as an upgrade and from DVD and it fails both ways.
    From within, I get the "Not compatible with system CPU" error. From the DVD it just flops with no messages after "loading" files

    This is a Dell Opti 170L Intel 82865g, Celeron 2.40.
    I'm not seeing what's incompatible unless its graphics - I thought the Celeron has the XD security feature...

    ??? stumped

    You'll have to check specs, but the two 2.4 GHz Socket 478 Celerons that I find do not include the execute disable bit:

    Intel® Celeron® Processor 2.40 GHz, 128K Cache, 400 MHz FSB

    Intel® Celeron® D Processor 320 (256K Cache, 2.40 GHz, 533 MHz FSB))

    (They're newer than I thought - may only go back to 2004.)

    appreciate that Bob. the first one seems to be the one.
    I checked bios, which is the last one dell did, and there is no 'switch' for that feature
