    my first question is...why do u want to update your bios? r u having probs with your system? as the old saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    your mobo is pretty old. u ought to look into purchasing a new one if u want live update capabilities. go to and check the prices....mobos r cheap!

    I agree completely w/Koko - if you don't NEED to flash your bios, don't.

    The message you are getting relates to memory management - but I don't know why you are getting it. Perhaps the boot disk you are using is trying to load a memory manager?

    Yeah, unless you have a reason to the trouble.

    however to get it to work a it should, you should just create a bootdisk using the normal format option in XP, don't use an old 98 disk or such.
