This will make you cringe, it is a P4B533 Asus Board.  Do not be so sad
though, my friend has a HP 64 Bit Athlon/VT ext., and this desktop will
burn circles around his.  They don't make them like they used to.  I
have a Athlon 64Bit 4000+ desktop also but somehow I just cant seem to
leave this old one.
Kernel = Linux ethies 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5 #1 SMP on CentOS Bits i686

the cache settings i think for adobe reading pages ahead into memory.
