some simple advise would be appreciatd. I have downloadedthe bios for this board but am too stupid to boot into dos as per the instructions. all the later boards I have used had a utility in the bios. What do I need to do. The first line of the 'How to manage and update your bos' off the asus site says 1. create a bootable floppy by typing format a:/s....... I am in xp and cannot do this .can I? I have a disk with the aflash and the bios but so far am stuffed. I basically want to use this mobo with my 1.4 Tbird but at the moment 1.o is all it can support. Any help much appreciated.
