Hi All,

Thanks for taking the time to have a read through all this.

    *  Step 1: A very brief description of your system: CPU,
northbridge, southbridge, mainboard and optionally other important

AMD Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64
Socket 939
1 GHz (K8)
I've got an AMD64 X2 4400+ in it if that's relevant.
North Bridge: ATI Radeon Xpress 200
South Bridge: ULI M1573

    * Step 2: Linux lspci output for your system, generated by booting
Linux via the original BIOS and runnning lspci.

    * Step 3: Super I/O chip on the mainboard (report the model
numbers on the actual chip, for example "Winbond W83627HF").

Winbond W83627EHG-A

    * Step 4: Type of BIOS device (see the question "How do I identify
the BIOS chip on my mainboard?" below).

I'm not sure if this is the right info, but I found a sticker saying
AMIBIOS BF13, 1044

    * Step 5: URL to the mainboard specifications page (optional).

It's a barebones PC and I haven't found a separate page detailing the mainboard.

    * Step 6: Any other relevant information you can provide.

Well I couldn't find mention of either northbridge or southbrige on
the linuxbios page (but perhaps that's because the info on the asus
site isn't talking about the same thing - no idea there) so I'm
guessing it may not be supported standard yet, but if there is
something I can do to help provide support then let me know. Like most
of you on the list the machine only has linux on it (gentoo 64bit) so
anything I need to run to help get info about the chips is no problem.

I also gave flashrom a quick spin and managed to get a dump of the
bios with it - I'm pretty certain it's good as I've upgraded the bios
previously and this one is very close to binary equal (though not
exactly) to the rom I flashed up.
