It's diabled in hardware. Unless you have an electron microscope and a sub-micronic etching system, there is no hope. CeleronII chips are just PentiumIII chips that fail the L2 cache test at bin sorting time. Therefore, Intel disables half of the cache (the half with the error in it) and sells the chip for 1/3 the cost. The cache latency is also higher on a C2 than a P3 (which, as a C2 850 owner, pisses me off).
