    You have a picture of your board?

    What you really need is the Cache Ram Module that goes in that Slot. I might have one of those if I dig deep enough.

    Well I found what I remembered I had, but it isn't the correct Module for that Slot. Sorry.

    Here is a Motherboard on eBay that uses a similar style Cache Memory Module.

    Here is another one.

    And here is a Cache Memory Module, but I don't know if it would work with your Motherboard.

    Also some regular Cache Chips, but I don't know if they are the correct ones or fast enough for your Motherboard.

    Again, though, the COASt modules, if I read correctly, only ever went up to 512KB, so if I want the maximum cache, I need to go with the DIP sockets anyway.

    Is the IC next to the COASt slot the TAG chip? It looks socketed to me.

    It does kinda look that way in the photo, but it's actually soldered directly to the board; it's a 74something logic IC. The tag chip is the socket between the CPU and the ISA slots.
