I'm guessing that you have a VIA EPIA 5000 or similar board?
I worked on this problem as part of the CentOS QA dev team a few years ago.
In the end you just have to use a kernel compiled (or re-compiled) for the i586 instruction set (as this will not attempt to use it)
If you can get an i585 version then you might also want to use the:
"noauto" and "noapic" kernel options.

Axel thin clients
...are you committed to your current thin client hardware - if not I can introduce you to our Spanish distributor (who speak perfect English - I assume you are in Madrid!).
Our devices come "out of the box" ready to connect to a terminal server - you can see one being setup and booting here. Setting up and booting take 30 seconds - subsequent boot only 3-4 seconds.
