The light under the battery is the Hard drive indicator it will light when hard drive is operating. On my Giga board the FF means it has gone thru all bios checks.
Since the codes listed in the book do not list FF we will assume.
A test for you is to watch the leds during boot, they should cycle the list on page 2-28. If they do and settle at FF then all is good.
Are you having problems?
