  1. If the drive is indeed backing up everything then the settings should be fine...if not they need some tweakin'

    Ok...i don't own the board but i will cover some generic ones...

    Jumper free config i assume is asus's bios overclocking option...that could be a whole other p4 overclocking guide for overclocking info

    pnpPci...if you are having no device conflicts then leave this sets IRQ's for devices...

    Usb config...unless you have a rare legacy usb device that is incompatable with a 2.0 port...leave this selection to usb 2.0 and enable legacy support (if thats an option)

    Speech config...i beleive that this is asus's bios troubleshooting software that tells you the bootup status over a speaker connected to the analog out of your board...don't enable this unless you have a hardware problem...

    Primary ide master...i really don't know what there is to setup...i just leave all of that stuff in auto...and only dissable the autodetect of the channels i don't use...

    Hardware monitor...again there is not much to setup...i would set the warning temp to about 65c and the shutdown temp to 80c

    Boot setting config...well if you can try to make the order floppy-atapi-Hard disk

    Thats about all i can answer...

    3 386DX-25's...12 volts...glue some ln2 and a wicked amount of overclocking and you get a willamantee minus 36 pins, 33.75 million transistors and a couple hundred mhz... :cool:
