This isn't a Linux question and it isn't pressing, but I thought I would 
throw it out anyway.  My brother got a company laptop as part of his 
job.  He is curious what the CPU speed is; doesn't need to know, but would 
like to. It is a proprietary laptop, Gateway I think, and has a nice logo 
cover up the POST screen so you don't see the usual start-up 
information.  Under Linux it would be a simple 'more /proc/cpuinfo|grep 
MHz' and I would have it.  I couldn't find the CPU speed anywhere in Windows.

Here at work, running NT, I searched the registry for mhz and found the 
speed under 
However, when I got home, I discovered the same key doesn't exist under 
Win98.  Does anyone know of a way to find out the CPU speed under Windows 
98?  It is not a pressing issue and next time I see my brother I will take 
a Linux CD with me, however, it should be possible and I am probably 
looking in the wrong place.
