Some of the newer CPUs boot at a slower speed than the "rating".  Mostly it
is so you don't accidently burn out your CPU before you get APM support

:run in the slower mode, or is this a probe issue, and it's actually 
:running at 1Ghz?  Just curious.

Ideas don't stay in some minds very long because they don't like
solitary confinement.
