        Geez...disregard the above as I was a bit quick on the send
button! Too many hours driving today. Anyway, 3 of the 4 PCI slots
in the non-AGP PowerMac's made since the Bllue&White are 64bit. The
first slot, which the video card normally resides in and in which it
is required to reside in for DVD playback, is a 32bit slot which
operates at 66mhz while the other 3 are 64bit and operate at 33mhz
though they also support 32bit cards at 33mhz.
