Ok. Yes indeed these CPUs are so old that I can give away better ones
for free for this fellow Debian user if he is in my country.
CPUs like that I sell on eBay from refurbished computers for almost
zero, just as a hobby, to give it second life. Working on such machine
is impossible apart from passive browsing and text typing.

With kindest regards, Piotr.
