How can I tell exactly what CPU I have. The label says
its an Intel Celeron 266 MMX as does the POST but I have run a couple of small routines; one of which said it was a 486 with a co-processor, another a 386. Is there any way to tell for sure.

If the label says celeron 266 that is what you have. Crude diagnostic will call it a fast 486, and even older diagnostic a 386. You should get better diagnostic routines. There is shareware CPUid which identifies the CPU when you cannot take the cover off and look at the label.

Download cpuid.exe from Intel. This is the sure way to tell exactly what kind of CPU you have.
