    Without an interposer, about the only CPU upgrade would be an Overdrive or similar (Kingston/Evergreen) which have the interposer built-in. But they're more rare than gold-pressed latinum:

    Why would you cripple the speed of the machine (approx 3MB/sec vs 8MB/sec transfer speed) with such an old drive?

    You'd almost certainly need an interposer (the stock CPU likely uses 5V, the DX4/100 likely 3.3).

    Nice! Always wondered what the access speed on a CF was on these types of setups. Had (well, still have) a 5160 with 2x127MB IDE drives (w/8-bit controller). Access speed was very poor.

    First thing you'll need to do is replace the CMOS battery (without that, any changes you make to the CMOS/BIOS would be lost when you power the machine down).

    A better suggestion might be an nLighted version of Win2k. Cut a copy to install on a 486DX4-100/64MB. Usable, as long as I don't push it too hard.

    Win98 is pretty much a slug on a 486. Already tried (and reverted back to Win95). MS "minimum" requirements are a 486-66/16MB and realistic minimum is a P120/64MB.

    If you're thinking of jumpering over the resistor, you may damage the keyboard port circuit or other circuit. Best to determine the value of the resistor and replace it.
