The thing is I think devbios supports the chip I have, but that 
something weird is happening (obviously) that I don't know about. Most 
of the code I've seen assumes that the sis chip is coupled with a 
superio chip that mine isn't either the sis950 or the sis 5595 or 
something like that, when mine is a ITE8661 (to which I have the spec 
sheet, but don't know what they are trying to do with the other chips 
so don't know what to change to make it work for mine).
