Dell 968 refused to install program on a Pentium M 1.7 GHz laptop

It said processor speed was too low.  CPU was running at 347 MHz (according to Computer Properties), probably the result of SpeedStep.   Can't believe the installer could be that clueless about CPU speed...  Anyway, went into Power Options and disabled CPU power management.  After restarting the installer went ahead.  Will turn back on the power management later.
