  2. According to the review at http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/mainbo...m2v-k8t890.html "ASRock ALiveSATA2-GLAN is based on the same K8T890 chipset as the system board being examined in this article [Asus M2V]. Taking into consideration that the two companies are more than related, one may wonder why they would release models that are similar"
  3. I haven't used the ECS Geforce 6100SM-M V1.0, but see the Customer Review by 'electrical-warehouse' at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Motherboard-Geforc...t/dp/B000OBTSW6 This is available in the US, for instance, at http://www.outletpc.com/c3504.html for $59.95 If you are having trouble with Win98 with over 512MB of RAM, see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;253912
  4. The M2V manual page 2-25 says "Install Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later versions when using Serial ATA drives." Can M2V run Win98SE from a SATA drive? How about an IDE boot drive with an SATA drive also attached?
