That's the impression i got, but you would know better and i haven't 
scientifically verified it.

I do have an older Athlon XP motherboard with 8235 sitting around that's 
retired now. If you are interested in checking it out or it would be useful
for you for any other purpose, i'd be happy to send it to you. It would 
come with some amount of memory, and i think i might even have some kind of 
athlon XP sitting around that would work with it too.

Please contact me off the list if you would like to get it. I'd be more
than happy to do it.
