Yes, Carft does have a Linux driver, but it requires a separate installation.

    Also, I don't see the Intel D945GCLF board on their list, even though the D945G chipset is listed (and that's the northbridge chipset used on that mobo). That is probably not important and only means that Carft doesn't sell the Intel motherboards.

    Every approach has advantages and disadvantages, but I always favor a BIOS-based approach if it is available, just because it keeps the overall installation simpler.

    So has anyone successfully tried the BIOS and got it working? I flashed it and I can still only get 800x600 as the lowest resolution.

    Yes, that works for me also, using BIOS version 099. But the sequence on my machine is "Display properties > Settings > Advanced > Adapter > List All Modes". Then, select 800x480. Some displays may not correctly report their supported modes to the plug-n-play process in XP, which requires this additional step to look at the all the modes supported by the BIOS. I am able to display this resolution on my 800x600 monitor using this procedure, even though the monitor ostensibly does not support it (it letterboxed the display).

    But as I understand it, it does take the more recent BIOS versions to provide this resolution.

    One more item for posterity:

    The AOpen CD/DVD, which shares the same IDE cable with the Addonics Compact Flash adapter, would go away when in XP after a while, which in turn caused Explorer to crash when attempting to access the CD and would also cause the CD drive to lock up, usually when spinning, such that the drive would not open.

    The cause is apparently a power management setting within XP. I had power management set to power down the disk drives after 10 minutes. I set that parameter to "never" and things seem to be working now. My assumption is that either the CD/DVD combo drive does not support APCI. Removing the CD, however, effectively powers down the drive, saving a watt or two.

    I installed the updated bios "099", tried the "show all modes" option. Still no 800x480.


    Got audio tho. It took a fresh install of XP home SP2 to get it to work. I have to say that the realtek HD engine on thsi little board is pretty kick a55! The sound on the Bose premium system stock in my 05 Murano is comaparable to cd quality with high bitrate MP3s.

    What to do with my now open pci slot............ still would like a decent video card with an s-video out so I could have dual displays, and/or front touch and rear dvd set-up.
