Does anyone know of a program to check the staus and functionality of the L2 cache on the motherboard? I want to make sure the cache on my DOS machine is being utilized.

Are you curious if your socket 3 mobo has fake cache? 😉

Nope. It's real alright. Though one bank came from one baord, the second bank came from another, and the tag came from a third. It's reading 512k at the boot screen, but I want to know if it is working.
