In dmesg:
..... CPU clock speed is 1666.7804 MHz

In X-Chat, using a Perl script:

AWESOME. I'm going to take some pictures, as soon as I can boot XP and offload the pics that are currently in my digital cam.

Yes, I finally got my Athlon XP 2000+ CPU and Gigabyte Socket A GA-7ZXE motherboard. I can feel the CPU's heat and the BIOS states the CPU temp is 145 degrees F. The case is still open but I'll shut it soon. I have the feeling I'll need more case fans. The system seems fast! I'll try to compile a kernel this weekend.

The only thing is that XP will not boot. And earlier, my Debian and FreeBSD installs were working but my NIC wasn't was having an IRQ conflict...I eventually moved it to the last slot in the box and the Linux/Unix OSs were fine afterward. Now, to get XP up again. I dunno what I'm gonna do about that, other than reinstall XP (grrrr....again). Or at the very least, reinstall it but on a separate partition, leaving the older install alone.

We'll see. Later.
