Also, the BIOS saviors are no longer being manufactured, so you might
have some difficulty finding the one you need. IOSS is no longer selling
them directly, but some vendors do still have some in stock, froogle can
probably help you with finding them. I also highly recommend the BIOS
Savior, I've got two (one DIP and one PLCC) and they work great.
