One would think my Abit BH6 board with an AGP and 6 PCI slots and then a vintage ISA slot, should be allowed by Windows 98 to fill all those slots up and use the full potential of the MoBo. But noooooooooooooo!!! :disgust: I've pulled an all nighter and now 1/2 my father's day trying to get this to work... but no dice... grrrrrr :|

Can anybody tell me for sure whether an ASUS CUSL2 or ? would give me a better chance for success?

the BX chipset only have 5 pci masters. the 6th slot is... not very useable. you could put a voodoo 2 in it.

I recall a few of the MSI BX boards had a PCI arbiter chip to make the 6'th PCI slot busmastering capable.
