I've got an Epox 8RDA+ and a Barton core Athlon XP 2500+ sitting
around here, at least one of which I suspect to be bad.  I don't have
any spare parts to test them with, so I don't know if it's the board
or the cpu that's bad, or possibly both.  I'm leaning towards it being
the CPU, because the motherboard was RMAed a bit less than a year ago
when I discovered it had bad caps.  If you want them they're yours for
the cost of shipping.
