Ignore John.. he's "confused".. the Celeron 300 (which you have),
is Slot 1, which will take a PII anything without any problems (it
may not run it at full speed, if it doesn't support 100Mhz bus, then
it won't run the 350+ at full speed.)
It however will take a PII-233+.. what's the board anyway?
the celeron didn't go to S370 until it got to 366Mhz.. at least AFAIR.
And the cacheless one's never existed in S370.
