    See this post to see how I killed my Soyo Dragon Plus.

    I am now open to suggestions for a new M.B.; ATX size, XP Athlon 1800, DDR memory...as many USB ports as possible; I don't overclock, but flexibility is nice.

    USB bootable would be nice!

    Thanks in advance for your condolences and recommendations; I'll be buying very soon and will let you know what I end up getting!

    I would go gigabyte or asus, I have gigabyte, the dual bios is well handy, so if u bugger up one bios then you have a backup that will copy itself over the damged one,

    Asus are generally fast and have some nice features like cpu heat protection etc.

    The die is cast: my weekend project. I bought a serial ATA drive to go with it. Who needs groceries?
