No it did not stop at the same place. I still suspect memory versus
the cpu, especially considering that, apparently, there were several
generations of the K6. I didn't know this. For several years, I did
not have the time or money to play with hardware and therefore lost
touch with much of the hardware that was out there.

I will provide this info., hopefully tonight when I get home. I'm
pretty sure this was never over clocked. It was the secretaries
computer of the church I attend. I'm working on remaking the system
into a web server as the secretary was just given a laptop.

Ok, sounds good. I'll see what I can find for this CPU.

How do wait states relate to memory speed? Please enlighten me. I
have an idea, but I'm only theorizing, I'd like to know what it really
means. If it's more in depth than one would like to type in a
response, sending a link is fine. I learned quite a bit on the "Sig
11" links given earlier.
