I don't know about other people but I've just come to the conclusion
that you can't use anything on motherboards infected with VIA chipsets.
I've had way too many problems in the past with things like PVR500's and
it's PCB bridge and VIA's ill designed IRQ and DMA handling. I'm won't
even attempt to use them anymore because its just not worth it to me to
find another faulty chipset. Everything, and I mean everything else that
I've tried in AMD, Intel, and SIS chipsets has worked just fine while
almost all VIA chipsets have had problems for me.......
