No correction from me :-) For me it is still s2462 (aka Thuder K7).

That sounds like it.

John,

do you recall from which to which version of the BIOS your upgrade
went? The upgrade procedure for the s2462 implies a W98 boot floppy
(never ever seen one of those :-) and it also strongly reccommends
flashing the CMOS memory. As this involves playing with jumpers on the
MB and I have 9 of them screwed into a rack, I hesitate to go that
path.... As I wrote the MBs are at 2.09 and the newest version from Tyan
is 2.10, with a not very interesting list of fixes/enhancements.
