It should work, but get a newer version like Kubuntu-8.04 Hardy.

You may need a different settings for your display/vga. Adjust them in the boot screen.

An E2140 isn't a Pentium D. Now you might think this was going to be relevant because the E2140 is more recent than 6.06, but a D isn't. My guess that this argument isn't relevant in this case because, to the software, the e2140 will be almost identical to other, earlier, Core2Duos (just not necessarily the same speed).

OTOH, if your Mobo (chipset) is more recent than the 6 of the 6, then that might be an issue. As suggested earlier, more recent releases are available...
