SubjectRe: [Sligtly Off-Topic] Status of Linux running on Athlon based boards?
I own a EP-7KXA motherboard (Via Chipset) with a 750 MHz Classic Athlon CPU.
I experience no problems running with either PC100 or PC133 SDRAM...

However I do get a problem when overclocking the bus to 110 MHz from 100.
But, this is probably expected--I start to get memory errors. I'm wondering if
that's because of non-prime RAM Chips or becuase the CPU can't handle the
speed.. I'm thinking it's the chips though.

FYI, Specs on this machine:

It supports my ISA AWE 32 pretty well too, as well as UDMA 33/66. :-)
