Well, I have an AMD-K6/2-500 running at 550 MHz and did not experience
any problems with either Linux nor Windows 98. Win95 had a timing loop
that was dependant some kind to the processor speed, and any k6(/2) with
300 and more MHz caused this loop to produce a "division by zero"
failure. I never heard of a similar problem in conjunction with Linux.

Bye, Mike
