No worries, Carl-Daniel. I know what you meant. I just want to be sure this
is going to work first. I have been very busy with other life things the
past few days, that is why I have not submitted it yet. This should be a
great advance though, it will allow mutiple dimm (dual and single sided)
support for many of the intel northbridges, including the i810, and
possibly the 440bx(which it is not currently working for).
