That's right 7200's are pci. In my opinion pci and
linuxppc are well worth getting over nubus and
mklinux. Just my own experience. MkLinux is a
microkernel. You first boot into the MacOS, then
boot into mklinux. There are enough differences
between the 2 distribs, I prefer LinuxPPC. PCI
is superior to nubus. You can always upgrade a
PCI machine with a faster G3 processor and gain
most of the benefits from the speed increase.

Looks like a G3 400MHz processor runs for @$400.
One could probably get a used one for a fraction
of that (if anybody sees a used G3 or G4 card
let me know and I can upgrade my 9600/200).
