A couple of weeks ago I upgraded my TP600E BIOS to the latest version from IBM's website. (Now the damn thing won't reboot properly. That'll teach me...) As soon as I'd done it Mandrake 6.1 told me I had a 75MHz processor. After I switched off Quick-Boot (in the BIOS upgrade) Mandrake then reported a 298MHz chip.

I've been told that Mandrake is a development of RedHat. Maybe there's something in it.

Anyway, that's my 0.02
