Nope, MMX was the first pentiums to break 100 MHz.

and right now, make bootstrap of gcc4.1.2 pass1 of chapter 5 is at 35
hours and 17 minutes.
I may have to restart the build, with a larger swap partition to try to
get this time down. just about to burn the lfslivecd-6.3 r2052. I'll
have to reset the environment when I boot the new livecd, so starting
fresh is an easy option.
