I have a Tyan Tiger 133 1843S (Apollo chipset) with dual Slot 1 866EB
Coppermine CPUs and 256 MB PC133 SDRAM, and get the exact same message. I
too, was wondering what the implication of this message is. I contacted
Tyan, but don't expect much enlightenment from them. Maybe someone from
the kernel group can help.
