Well, IIRC, there was a problem with Win95 that was M$'s fault on that
mobo, the problem did not exist under Win98.
I'm running a mp3 jukebox on that same mobo, it's been up sans the
occasional reboot running 24/7 for the past 2+ years. It was a desktop
system before that. In fact, I think we still have a few of those mobo's
doing stuff around the office.
I am running AMD K6-2's in them fwiw. In fact, I'd like to find a few
more 503's for some other chips that have been freed up.
