GA-6VA7+

Question for Jim-> Did you resolve the BIOS issues with your GA-6VA7+ motherboards? I recently acquired a baby AT computer with a Gigabyte GA-6VA7+ motherboard in it. It is a Rev. 2.1 with an Award BIOS version F2. Did you find a safe way to flash this board to a higher version?
Thanks.

RE: Fastest AT Board

On the specs page, it mentions that the keyboard is an internal connector, cable option. I happened to come across a link to this motherboard on a Tech forum while googling for a different AT motherboard. I was suprised to see it, I thought socket 370 was the end of the line for Baby AT's.

Asus P5A-B Motherboard Question

Hello, I have a question about PCI slot 1 beside the Accelerated Graphics Port. Do these two slots share the same resources on an AladdinV Motherboard? I want to add an ATA 133 IDE controller in PCI slot 1 beside my ATI Rage Pro 128 graphics card, and hope that no conflicts occur.
Thanks in advance.
