Thats because PR stands for "perfomance Rating" ie as fast as a 233 because
our chips are better I've got a MII 300 it only clocks at 233 when you see
linux boot it will report the actual mhz.

I have a second hand Cyrix IBM 233 with the peocessor description:
6 * 86 MX
3.0X 66MHZ-2.9V CORE
I set the mother-board jumpper corectly as stated in the docs.
The funny thing here is: if i set it properly, the linux installation will
Running Anaconda - please wait...
Install exited abnormally -- received signal signal 11
sending termination signals... done
sending kill signals... done
/mnt/sourcew umount failed (
you may safely reboot your system
But... if I set the mother-board jumpper to pentium 200, I can install
everthing normally, withoung having any problem.
I checked the processor (the hardware) and it is 233 as I typed before.
Any help please?
Thanks in Advance,
