My mistake - it's a question

My mistake - it's a question of motherboard design, not processor, so I suppose you've got a shot.

BeDrivers

Also note: "Some 8600/250 and 9600/250 are incompatible with the BeOS. It seems there are two versions of the logic board for these particular systems, one that works, one that doesn't." - Be's site

it should work

according to here:
http://www.bedrivers.com/hardware/info.php?product=1100&category=3&sub=21

i'm going to risk it, if it dosn't work, i'll probably install darwin 7.0.1 via xpostfacto
