The PR440FX works with them... I don't think Intel intended for the
440FX chipset to be used with these chips, instead expecting people to
use the 440GX chipset (I think that is the one).  However it does work.
I did not try them in the W6Li.

Indeed my memory had failed me... they have 512K cache each....

Still a bit of a dilema... 200mhz with 1 meg cache or 333 with 512K
cache.... hmmmm....  guess it would depend on the application...
