Hey, they were just suggestions.

Do you actually use GPM? SSHd is something you either know you use or
you don't use it, and if you don't use it it ought to be off for
security reasons.

At 433 Mz it will either be a Celeron, which can take PC66, PC100 or
PC133 memory (and will run any of them at 66 MHz), or a K6 variant,
which will want PC100 or PC133 memory for best performance.

I'd recommend that Les be careful with this -- some motherboards that
age wouldn't cope with 512 MB DIMMS.

Hope this helps,

James.
