HardwareExtreme, I am running MS-DOS 6.22 on this machine, on HD0. Everything is perfectly configured for MS-DOS games and low-level programming work. However, on HD1, I am planning to install a copy of Windows 98 just to see the AMD 5x86 CPU at work. By the way, it arrived and I have installed it. A major performance boost over the Intel 486 DX4/100MHz part. I have added a 3rd 4.3Gb Quantim hard disk but I have nothing installed on this one. It is not partitioned and it is disconnected for the moment.
filipetolhuizen, the keyboard is indeed awful at games. Even at programming. But unfortunately it's all I have of this vintage. I'm still hunting for a nice keyboard...
ODwilly, this is indeed some great news! I have put the Katmai at work and it runs barely warm to the touch with the attached stock cooler. The radiator is a big OEM aluminum brick. I should try to see whether it's running stable without the buzzing cooler. Otherwise it's a good machine. However it's video is awfully slow (Riva TNT).
