Anyone know what type of Motherboard takes a Intel Penium II CPU ?. I am use to AMD Boards e'g Socket 462 (Socket A).

Is a Intel PII CPU a Socket 370 fitting.

Can you still get the boards for them. got given a cpu but no motherboard.

Don't know if this is allowed, asking 2 qeustions

I have a redundant Win98SE CD, OEM with code/book etc, that was never used as I upgraded O/s from day 1. Does anyone know if microsoft do cash back ofers on past Windows CD's ?. like they do on Office software. Or could I put it in my local paper without breaking any MS law.

Intel PII cpu fitted into a slot. Chipsets associated with this were, from memory, Intel 440BX and the like. Try e-bay for a suitable board and RAM.

PII and the CPU was fitted Flat and not slot otherwords it was fitted on its edge. Weird.
