I have used them on i810e, i815, and VIA VT82C694X boards. The bios's  
did not detect the correct speed but the OS and benchmark software  
did. I could not get them to work with i810 or SIS 630, that's why it  
would be cool to see if we could get LB to do the job, even better. It  
could bring new life to these older boards.

I know what you are talking about, the slockett adapters. I still have  
a few of these kicking around somewhere. When they first came out they  
would only do a FSB of 66 or 100. Later they did come out with 133MHz  

Thanks - Joe
