SubjectRe: Overclocking PCI / UNIX95 compliance
And lo, Patrick St. Jean saith unto me:
> I'll pick a little nit here... If a motherboard claims to be PCI-2.1

But "handle" in this case includes "forbid at negotiation time". If
*any* device on a PCI bus can't handle 66 MHz, none may use it. This
is part of the reason why we've not seen 66 MHz-capable PC boards/chipsets
and 66 MHz adapter cards (esp. video!) years ago...
