Re: Pentium II processor..
Your first mistake was buying a Pentium CPU with MMX... if you can, take
it back and get a Celeron 300a, they're much better CPU's (with less cache
however). That's just my opinion, i've found Pentium 2's are crap, Pentium
Pro's are still the top Pentium CPU, and Celeron is the next nicest Intel
CPU... MMX (in my testing) has resulted in blowing up a CPU (took 4
minutes to blow up a P2 400 (i was using it as a server cpu)).
Bottom line: If you can, take it back, and get a Celeron 300a or splurge
and get a Pentium Pro 200, other than that, I really can't tell you how to
fix your problem but my guess would be the MMX shit. P2's aren't really
built for unices (from what I've heard).
