SubjectRE: APIC usb MPS 1.4 and the 2.4.2 kernel

:: It seems that the APIC on this motherboard does not have most of the

So for Tyan Tigers, is it better to compile the kernel without APIC? About
to install Linux on a dual 500 P3 here.

There's a Win2K patch for VIA chip sets now... I've got USB working under
Win2K here.
