Glad to hear you finally got hold of an ISA card for it! :-)

Perhaps we could make an attempt to port fVDI to it sometime during the
upcoming holidays?

You should _never_ disable the instruction cache with an '040. Without
burst mode access, every single instruction will take several clock cycles
to fetch and most of them are supposed to execute in one or two...
I wouldn't be surprised if performance dropped well below 30%.

I can imagine. It's probably faster for many things than my 166MHz P5/MMX.
I have a _really_ crappy graphics card in that machine right now.
