Well, I figure I'll use this, if I can get other parts for
reasonable. Why let it sit around, when I can put it to work as a firewall,
or some other server purpose. As for speed, it's still faster the the 166
Multias I have...
You asked what happens on power up of the Multia? Well, I sent in a
message to this list on June 8, 2000...
I did try the fail safe on that machine, with no luck. It all points to
Flash memory being bad. Here's the message with the results...
FYI, according to DEC's "Multia MultiClient Desktop Service
Information" book (p/n EK-MULTS-IN.C01), on page 5, Specifications, it lists
the 166MHz as a Digital '21066-AA (LCA)' CPU model, and the 233 as '21068-AA
