ok here is what i know about my mobo:<br>all the information the <a href="http://linuxbios.org">linuxbios.org</a> tells me to send i think should be in <a href="http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=278">
this</a> link (this is my mobo), i think all the specs are compliant to that of the ones on that page.<br>lspci:<br>00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82815 815 Chipset Host Bridge and Memory Controller Hub (rev 04)<br>
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82815 815 Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 04)<br>00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 11)<br>00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801BA ISA Bridge (LPC) (rev 11)<br>
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801BA IDE U100 (rev 11)<br>00:1f.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM USB (Hub #1) (rev 11)<br>00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM SMBus (rev 11)<br>00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio (rev 11)
<br>01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] (rev 15)<br>02:03.0 Ethernet controller: Accton Technology Corporation SMC2-1211TX (rev 10)<br>im unsure what the super I/O chip is but i presume it is on the link.
<br>i think i have a Plastic Leaded Chip Carrier with phoenix bios on, but i could be wrong.<br>is there anything else that you need to know? please talk to me as a noob (im not completely new to linux but i am to bios and hardware).
