Why does my 486 DX2 66 register 0.78 BogoMips (no turbo switch) ?

Why does my 486 DX2 66 register 0.78 BogoMips (no turbo switch) ?

0.78 BogoMips ? When I boot off the slackware net boot disk version 2.0.1
with a 1.0.9 kernel I get 0.78. When I boot off a "rescue" boot disk I
get a more normal 33.x . Installing with a 0.78 bogomip kernel is like watching
paint dry.  Any ideas here ? It isn't the "turbo" switch, this machine
doesn't have one ( Compaq 486 DX2 66 with 12 meg ram, 120 meg IDE drive ).

Thanks  Jim Buzbee

1. Performance Increase: 486/DX2 66 to 486/DX4 100

I'd like to know what kind of a performance increase I can
expect by swapping my 486/DX2 66 for an AMD 486/DX4 100, and by getting a
motherboard (VLB) with 256K cache (my current board has no external
cache).

        Also, how much of an increase would I get over the above by
putting in a 486/DX5 120?  And how much more would it cost me?
