I know you want to keep the motherboard but there is not much more you can do with it. No 100mhz bus and the k6-2 on 66mhz bus is pretty old. I suggest scrounging the rest of the components and get AT style socket 370 board (Unless you case is ATX). You can use all the parts except CPU and motherboard. Soyo makes a couple AT style boards that are cheap. Pop in a Celeron and there you go. I know the Duron's have better performace but you would need an expensive motherboard and new case/power supply. (Still waiting for SIS 730 chipset socket A motherboard)
