Thats not the issue.  its not there.  We had so many issues we went
back to for a diff board.

Things that didnt work:
1. Mythdora 10 would not install in graphic mode.  had to boot with xdriver=vesa
2. SPDIF didnt work
3. Updating the BIOS caused the system to hard lock

this is all i can remember at this point.  I would recommend NOT
buying this board!

I am not a newbie, been using Myth/Linux for 3 years on several boxes
for prod and dev.

Hope it helps others...
