It is the LC model chip. How do I tell if it needs the mac53c9x=1,0

Is this box running a 68040 or 68LC040? At least some C610's came with
the latter, which doesn't run linux reliably.

I wouldn't be surprised if the C610 used the same chip at the C650, so
mac53c9x=1,0 would be your friend.

Do you have any problems uses mac-fdisk from vc2?
