Does anyone know of a free BIOS for the intel premiere2 motherboard
which will correctly scan for large (64MB) simms?  This (many/most)
MB uses the 433/434NX chipset, pctech rz1000 ide, and smc37c665 i/o chip.
I've tried all? the intel/ami versions, but they seem to have written
the memory scan for the LX chipset which maxed out at 16/32MB simms.

I have a combined hw/sw fix to use 64MB simms upto win98, but since
it involves running a small prog from autoexec before windoze takes over,
I can't use it with win2k.

Alternatively, does anyone know a way to execute a dosprog before win2k
takes complete control of the machine -the dosprog has to be able to access
the chipset registers - which win2k normally protects against.

I have these machines run quite nicely @ 225Mhz, so please refrain from
unnecessary snipes.
