    That seems really odd. I hope that its just a silly mistake or something.

    They are not all the same chipsets. The southbridge is common among many of the chipsets - these are usually compatible with just about any other northbridge; they just control the PCI bus and hard drive controller and whatnot.

    Northbridges are specific to CPU types. I looked up VIA's actual model numbers for these northbridges in question.

    KT266A - VT8366A
    KT133A - VT8363A
    Apollo Pro 266 - VT8633 (note, 8633, not 8366...)
    Apollo Pro 266T - VT8653
    older Apollo Pro 133s are all VT82C69x series chips, modified for different purposes.
