May be I am asking stupid things, but:

I have a Intel Pentium 90 (or -- after all that --- I think to have...),
but "cat"ing /proc/cpuinfo says:

processor : 0
cpu : 586
model : Pentium 75+ <------------!!!!!!!!
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
stepping : 4
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid : yes
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr mce cx8
bogomips : 39.83
This is caused by hacking
the motherboard to a higher clock... ;-)

What does this "75+" mean??? "A little bit more than 75MHz" ?
Or am I fooled by my "local dealer" ???

Another question:
What is the correct way to access /proc/kcore for reading out the contents
of the memory? A simple "cat" hangs my machine after a few seconds...
(I hear the crowd laughing.....) :-).
