Slow performance in Linux after inserting Powerleap PL-P4/N proc adapter



I recently upgraded an old Dell 8100 by putting in a Powerleap PL-P4/N
processor adapter (socket 423 to socket 478) and upgrading the
processor from a P4 1.33 MHz to a P4 2.6 GHz.  Under Windows, there is
a noticeable performance increase.  In Linux however, performance is
*horrible*--boot times are especially slow (~10 minutes).  It looks
like the kernel recognizes the processor, but it's still reporting
~1.33 MHz.

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

Can anyone who knows more about this suggest something else to
test/probe to help try and figure this out?
