My database is being duped and the server is being rebuilt. So its just a temp link for now, but it will remain active for some time.

Then they must be using the same BIOS or the wrong BIOS is on your board.
One clear way to tell is to peel of the sticker on top of the BIOS chip. Underneath will display the model #

Toby: that is another site in a pretty long list of online places where people are trying to help you and keep the information on older stuff. As a matter of fact, webhq@xs4all.nl is one of my email addresses. The site is made by Steve Matheson with much dedication. If you feel like it you could make him a donation via PayPal.

edit: where's the spell checker when you need one...

Hey HWJ, sorry about the harsh words before. The 921 V1.1 has two BIOS strings provided. One of which matches mine to a T. Also the picture matches what I have. Yes the BIOS string does lead to several different model boards (dont know why :? ). The thing that I noticed right off with the links you provided (for the BIOS string) was all the boards had more RAM sockets. I very much appreciate all the help.

Thanks
