This is incorrect for a stock Falcon, it still boots without the DSP being
fed with a clock, although when you try to use a program that uses the DSP
it could hang if the program isn't properly written. I know, because my
wire conaining the clock signal to the DSP fell off the other day, and
some programs just stopped working.

Both 32 and 50MHz on the bus works if the 50MHz clock is strong enough to
override the 32MHz one, I've done this too :-) but ofcourse not with an
