The working 1400c/166 has an internal ethernet card, but I use a 3Com
PCMCIA network card on both pb's

Yes, same version Crescendo G3/PB PPC 750 333MHZ with 1MB for Powerbook

Well, I just swapped the CPU's, and although they are identical, it
seems that the one I got on eBay isn't functioning 100% correctly. My

the original CPU (slooww), while the pb1400/166 with my CPU now hangs at
boot. Looks like a CPU/hardware issue :-(
