Dan Mattsson said: Lousy support, unstable, will not accept 3x100 MHz (may be L2 cache). Check out www.boardrunner.com for support, heaps better than LS' own!
Peter Huncar said: I can't get a BIOS upgrade... :-(( from www.lucky-star.com.tw, there are
only old versions.

On , 22-Oct-00 JGC left the following Comment: Had much trouble with this board. Windows just locks up with a K6/2-350. When it locks up, a reset won't do the work: it hangs on boot. Only a hard power off can resume the board. I'm very happy it was not my board. I like my DFI much more.
On , 16-Jun-00 Peter Huncar left the following Comment: I have recently problems to copy a big amout of data from one IDE drive to another (slave CD-Rom Acer to master HDD Maxtor on the same IDE port).
It usually freezes.
