What CPU the laptop has?
What version of gameover you were trying to run? i586 or x86_64?
Nothing is easy as it looks.

That's an old, BIOS-based laptop with an Pentium M 760 CPU (32-bit), so make sure you're using the right ISO:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sparkylinux/files/gameover/sparkylinux-3.6-i586-gameover.iso/download

The x86_64 ISO won't work on this hardware (as written above: it's 32-bit).
There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)
