Thanks a lot for the help.

I have only KT600 and 133A on hand currently. I can't access the rest untill the
winter vacation in Jan 2009 when I go back home, so maybe I could try the 133A first?

You are right on the KT600. After hours' googling, I realize that I won't be able
to find any datasheet online. And I am thinking about contacting the VIA. Did they

And for the 133A. Well, actually I'm not quite sure it is a 133A. The board has a 38L3456
and a VT82C596B but I heard some said 38L3456 is replaecement for VT82C964. Do you know
about that? The superIO is FDC37M813, which seems not supported yet.
