straying even more offtopic:
is there any point at all in buying such a high-MHz processor? Once you're
above the "comfort level" what's the point? IME memory makes much more
difference than cpu with linux, ie i use a 233mhz k6 at home and it's as
fast as i could wish for. My sister uses a P133 and it's never slow either.
(nearly diskless aswell).
spend the money on memory or a good scsi controller and scsi disks.. much
better value for money..
