Why not install Precise? It is LTS so will be supported long after Natty dies in October 2012.

If you hold shit at boot you can select recovery mode, then select root and run:

passwd foo; reboot

change foo for your username. Eg:

passwd andy; reboot

Let the server boot as usual and log in with your new password.

will precise support the dual intel xeon cpu's if so i will install precise then.

Sure, it can support multiple CPUs with multiple cores
