CPU/Mother compatability?

I have a Generic 586hx motherboard with award bios and mmx support...i am currently using a Cyrix110mhz...when my m2pr200 is placed on the board with all the correct voltage jumper settings it is recognized as a 486cls-s 66mhz...does this mean no chance of compatibility and buy a new board...or can i get away with the new chip?

If this motherboard is for pentium then you need to upgrade your bios if it is flash rom then you will have to download bios upgrade from internet and install it in ms-dos  if your is not flash then you have to upgrade it go with MR BIOS www.mrbios.com
If you want new motherboard then my anserw is yes, you need new board for your Cyrix M2 6x86 MX you need to buy pentium motherboard the chipest you can buy is amptron PM8600
with USB, ULTRA DMA/33, for $65 on www.onsale.com/computers.htm or www.onsale.com/exchange.htm also you will need to install your ram in pairs, but you should buy sdram as this type of ram will be only used on motherboards. Also try wintune 98 if you use internet explorer this software will give you more info about speed of your. There is software on www.alternative.com that will let you set your bios
