Alex Joni has announced a Live (and installable) Ubuntu 8.04 CD with EMC2 and a real-time kernel included. Update, 2009: By now this has been quite well tested and unless you have other reasons to prefer 6.06, you should probably install a new machine with 8.04. The original warning still follows for the sake of posterity.
If you have a non-production system you'd like to test on, and feel you can give good bug reports in the event of trouble, maybe you should give it a spin. But heed Alex's warning:
In addition to the 32-bit Live CD, you can also add emc2 to a 64-bit install by using the emc2-install.sh mentioned in the linked message. That version is even more experimental than the 32-bit version; Unfortunately, I see kernel crashes after 2 days to 2 weeks even when not running EMC2.
