I may even still have the card in my junk but I think I tossed it as I like the AMD. Chow.
First of all, all K6s were Socket 7, which is a socket, not a slot. The K6s used Intel's GTL FSB protocol that Intel also used for the Pentium, Pentium Pro, PII, and PIII CPUs. Slot A was used for the first AMD Athlon CPUs and used DEC's EV6 FSB protocol, which only works with the AMD Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP, and DEC Alpha 21064, 21164, and 21264 CPUs.
What you are talking about is a slotket adapter.
Slotkets allow somebody to install a socketed processor into a motherboard with a CPU slot. Slotkets converted Intel's Slot 1 into Socket 8 for the Pentium Pro or Sokcet 370 for Mendocino Celerons and Socket 370 PIII Coppermines and Tualatins. There were never any slotkets that allowed somebody to put a Socket A Athlon in a Slot A motherboard, although that would have been compatible. You can physically fit a Slot 1/370 Slotket into a Slot A board, but it is not electrically compatible and will not function. You must have had a Slot 1 Intel board and had a Socket 370 Slotket if it was able to work at all.
