Hi,

Does the second CPU installed on a Dual Pentium II MB have to match the speed of the first?

Yes it does.  For example, you cannot have a 266mz and a 300mz on one motherboard.  They must both be 266mz or 300mz.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.  Thanks!

Are there any motherboards that will support two different CPU speeds?

No, unfortunately it cannot be done because the CPUs themselves do not support such a feature.  You see, the CPUs have to be able to communicate with each other, and in order to do so, that have to be doing it at the same frequency (clock speed).
