Replying to Mike Wafkowski's email:

Hmm I seem to remember something about this - does this still apply to 
my board that sets the multipiler via DIP switches?  Or does the DIP 
switches just tell the processor what multipiler to use and the 
processor can ignore this?  So what's the point of having DIP switches 
that sets the multipiler on the motherboard?  Yes I do know half of the 
switches sets the FSB speed, I'm referring to the other half that sets 
the multipiler.

If so, will non HDTV MythTV work fine on a P3 500 on a 100MHz FSB?

Replying to Mechcozmo's (Brandon) email:

Yes I know higher FSB is better but this board only supports a maximum 
of 100MHz FSB! :)

Thanks very much for both your help again!
