Hehe... in fact, when I wrote the previous email, I had that, then
decided it was just bloat to say that as nobody use it for anything
but video ;)

Well. I don't even know if it's really a 66Mhz slot, or some kind of
hacked 33Mhz with a doubled clock (I don't know if it really follow
the PCI spec for 66Mhz). I heard noise when the machine was released
about that slot not beeing completely standard.
