Don't worry Holger, I understand perfectly how the DRB registers work  
on the i828** chipsets I am just a little confused on how the whole  
row_offset thing plays into it. I am already able to setup ALL FOUR  
DRB registers with out it. So, I am questioning if I really need to  
use it at all. I noticed the i440bx does not use it.....

Thanks - Joe
