There should be a discussion of this few month ago ..

Yep. 240 & 100 have their processors on a module, which can be replaced
for the 100 it are 20, 33, 40, 50. for the 240 you can replace the 40
module with a 60. Or if i try to remember it, on the dec5000/100 the 20,33
& 40 module use same processor (r3000), different speed. the 150 is a r4000
While writing it, i see, that all of this is better explained on the
pmax-port webpage already ... ;-))
