Will do, thanks for the info (especially the reference).

I never even got the southbridge working correctly, I could only get
serial output after a soft reboot from the original bios. I suspect it
might have been that I needed special cpu init for the k7, which is
present in v1, but it isn't worth implementing in v2 just for this
motherboard. AMD (as I'm sure some of you know) supplies docs for the k6
and k8 on cpu init, but doesn't for the k7, making things very
difficult. The northbridge is the amd 751, which amd has also all but
destroyed the docs on, so I decided it was time to find another toy, and
a dual p3 is definitely a better toy :D
