Ah... yes. *blush*
I'm still having problems with i386, but I suspect that my motherboard
(Asus K8V) just doesn't support such a slow(!) chip. Now that I look, I
find that I can't drop the FSB speed down to what it apparently should be,
so I think my problem actually is that the board is driving the CPU too
hard and I'm getting the usual "weird" stuff happening as a result.
Time to go get me a real Athlon64 chip...
Thanks for the sanity check. Sorry to bother y'all.
