So here is what I currently have. Purchased a B&W G3 from a local thrift store yesterday. During the course of some upgrades and cleaning I managed to crack the CPU(doh!!!). I currently have a 300MHZ zif from a beige g3 but I don't belive it will work without changing the B&W bus speed. Has anyone ever tried this or managed to get it working ?

How on earth did you crack the processor?
Anyways, I have always assumed that if it's the same socket, it should work.
Try the other processor and see what it does anyways.

It'll probably work, but you need to change the jumper block to set the right bus speed, or you might overclock the processor. This page shows how the jumper block works

nope, dropping it down to a 66mhz bus did not seem to help. So it looks like when the g3 was damaged it took the motherboard with it ( I know the zif i tried works since it boots the beiged it was pulled from just fine)
