We have an  asus A7V133 that had a 1.2 and 256 megs or memory. It's
happily running 4.7 stable. I wanted to put an athlon XP chip and 1 gig
more memory. The first thing I did was update the bios and then
installed the chip and memory. Then when starting it got core dumps all
over (sendmail getty, ect.). Then I removed the memory and still got the
dumps. After I replaced the chip (XP1700) with the 1.2 and all the dumps
stopped.  When upgrading to a chip like that (athlon to XP) do I need to
do something different to BSD so it will not flake out.
