    Actually, one of my fastest machines is this one:

    bruehe2# cat /proc/cpuinfo
    [...]
    model name : Pentium III (Katmai)
    cpu MHz : 551.280
    [...]

    And one, which has a not-so-good connection to me.

    That's clear :-)

    distcc will fail here, because of different gccs and different distributions
    (ever tried to use gentoo and distcc in the same distcc-network? It's a real
    pain).

    Thanks for the hints anyway,
