Hello,
I wonder if I could get a true Pentium motherboard and
then plug in a 486 chip ?? I am not referring to those motherboard
which has a blue CPU slot for P24T. Is there any technical problems
in doing so ??

The Pentium has more pins than a 486. Presumably a "true Pentium mothe
would be socketed for the larger part, and so a 486 would not fit.

And the Pentium mb's will more than likely have a PCI bus...

Indeed. Pilaging last month's computer shopper led me to call this company,
and here's a price quote, less than a week old:

Part Price Vendor
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Intel Pentium/PCI motherboard 1,995 Vortex Systems (800)586-5860

This is a 60MHz processor.

Hello,

You should look into Pentium Overdrive processor. They became available around 1996.
