Nope. The config bytes 2c-2f on all the board's PCI devices are 0. The 
440BX manual states that they are write-once and have to be set during 
bootup; I suspect the same is true for the southbridge.

Or are you hinting at something completely different?

Am I right in thinking we can only use PCI devices for board 
identification? Unfortunately this board has no PCI devices other than 
those in the north- and southbridges (and expansion cards). No onboard 
sound, vga or ethernet.
