I have an ancient laptop with a K6, which is why I'm familiar with this topic.

Yep, you're right. I'm installing 11.2 on an old Compaq 2266 with a
K6-3/400 right now to use as a modem/proxy server. The RAM speed is
running around 96MB/s(using dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null and then
Ctl-C after 10 seconds) and the 160GB hard drive is getting a whopping
8.6MB/s transfers via hdparm.

This motherboard is such crap. It's got all voltages from 2.0-3.5,
and will do 83Mhz FSB, but wasn't stable. SiS5598/5513 chipset. Oh
well, considering the usage, it'll do.

Thanx for the tip.
