Wow. You are the 3rd person in 2 days to ask about 440bx. A year of
nothing and then pow. Things come in 3's I guess.
Yes. 440bx is supported. Currently AGP may or may not work. The
default routing of Legacy VGA stuff is controlled by a strap setting on
the Nortbridge so its just possible that if the strap setting is right
that AGP might be up enough for the emulator to bring up a card.
Our board does not have AGP so I don't know if its setup right (if at all)
Start with mainboard/bitworks/ims and go from there.
Also see my next post on possible memory issues.
