No freezing problems? OIC, you probably don't have a 2nd tag RAM on
there, do you? (The board tends to freezes when a 2nd tag RAM is
installed, mainly when you run a Pentium MMX on it. Solderung on an SMD
resistor at R2 helps.)

I already knew this, but thank you anyway ;). (Used to have a GA-586DX,
Gigabyte's HX dually.)

I think you've already mentioned this some time in the past.

Well, here in .de I can get Millennium IIs for EUR 5 apiece as BuyNow!
on Ebay, not a bad deal (I ordered two, one for the ex-486 and one for
dual monitor operation on my main box, since Win2k cannot use S3 based
cards as secondary ones [I'll need a "desk upgrade" for that, but this
is not quite unlikely to happen in the next year or so]). Stuff I'd also
look out for are ELSA WINNER 2000AVI-4 and 2000AVI/3D-4 (S3 968 w/ 170
MHz DAC and Virge/VX w/ 220 MHz DAC, respectively).
Ah, great, the scuzzy HA has arrived, gonna install that now. :)

BTW: The list owner header still has to be changed, as it seems.
