Bummer. Out of curiosity I went to Ubuntuland myself. Virgin 13.04. But I'm stuck with "ERROR: could not insert 'phc_intel': Invalid argument" too. As I neither have time nor urge to play any longer with it, I suggest you build your own kernel with the patch applied (or acpi-cpufreq as module), ask someone to build it for you or try another non-Ubuntu distribution. I suggest the latter. ;)
By the way, only now I see you have a Pentium M. It seems you need to patch your kernel anyway. See http://www.linux-phc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4984.

Bummer it is. If I understand correctly anything Debian-based is out of question for me?
Except Arch and Fedora/Centos (none of which is in my comfort zone), anything else I should specifically consider?

Thanks for all your help so far!

Debian itself is OK but I don't know about the rest of its familiy.

Thanks again.

Would it be too much to ask if you can possibly give three-line instructions on compiling and installing one's kernel with phc additions? :P I might give it a try when I have some free time.

Last time I've compiled a kernel was iirc circa 2004 to get my wireless working, and even then I was just following someone's page on the internet.

Finally this should work with the new phc-intel package. http://www.linux-phc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=267 Just build and install the kernel module and boot with cpufreq_driver=phc-intel.
