Ben and Tom,
Thanks for the replies. The reason I ask is that when
I use "idebus=66" in the boot argument, the syslog
shows bootup message "using 66MHz bus speed.." rather
than "assuming 33MHz bus speed..". So I assumed the
inclusion of the boot argument sped up the computer.
Are the appearances of these messages in the syslog
fictitious? Or should I simply not go over 66?
