Thanks for the reply, Nukem.
What kind of BIOS did it have? Award? AMI? Or, was it an Intel Propietary BIOS?
Unfortunately, if you look around Ebay you won't find any type of Intel 865PERL(X/K/L) motherboard for anywhere close to 50 bucks. Theye are all over $90, generally speaking.
All the boards on eBay that are less than 60 bucks are all based on an SiS chipset or the Via Chipset, which I know nothing about. A search of SiS vs. Via vs. Intel 865PE chipsets with Google got me nowhere as far as comparisons/reviews were concerned.
Do you know anything about the Via chipset (PT800, is it?).
