Thanks, you are correct, except the BIOS stubbornly refuses to reset it now.
I have zeroed the cmos (using the jumper) several times, and pressed F2(? I
think) to set default values, but still a zero.  It's interesting the the
M787cl+, after a zero cmos, doesn't boot on the first poweron, have to then
poweroff and try again. Oh well, budget board, budget bios I guess. Another
argument for Linuxbios.
