WIN 95 OSR2.X PATCH FOR AMD 350 MHZ AND HIGHER K6-2 PROCESSORS

From the shop...  I've been asked if the Epox EP51-MVP3C-M and EP-58MVP3-M Super7 motherboards support 350 Mhz AMD K6-2 processors.   The answer is yes... I have installed them on three motherboards so far.   And since EpoX has just released a new BIOS for these boards for the 400 and 450 Mhz K6-2s, I presume they will support those processors as well.  However, there is timing problem with the OSR2.X releases of Windows 95.   It causes the following error message:

"Device IOS failed to initialize..." It can also corrupt the Windows registry.  Windows 98 and other versions of Windows 95 do not have this problem,
