the chip will work with nt server... however.... your system will not run optimally and will most probably attain a blue screen of death (stop) every now and then... as happens to me since my MB is not on the hcl...  there are no guarantees... your best bet is to install it and just see what happens.... the effects on different systems cannot be known unless extensive testing has been done... odds are that you will find it will work to whta you need it to.... and how you need it to... however i would not use it if the server was mission critical

For full compatibility with NT Server and HCL, the CPU most support Symmetrical Multiprocessing.  AMD and Cyrix have not and are not supporting SMP.  They are going after the low cost single CPU market.  Only Intel And The DEC Alpha RISC chip support SMP.

it will only affect single processor systems as you cannot have a dual system w/an amd or cyrix chip. they don't support SMP (symmetric multiprocessing). your best bet is to just build a system that has all components on the hcl.... unless you just wanna play a bit with it.... in that case it should work for what you need.... but expect the best results with dos/win95/win3.11/win98 with a single processor amd or cyrix system.

According to AMD the K6 is compatible with Windows NT server 4.0 and is hardware compatibility tested, check out their web-site:

http://www.amd.com/K6/k6docs/compat/k6compat.htm

I have myself tested a K6-233 with NT server 4.0 successfully, so it is possible though I haven't done any reliability testing.
