Hey, thanks guys. Would never have heard of Jama without your help. Ive found the VIA southbridge chip so the id is confirmed. No need for a bios update as mine is the old version. Ill try and assembly the mobo with my 800 Duron and post back, hopefully to report success!
BTW if these boards are turning up at computer fairs in the UK perhaps an entry for Jama in the manufacturers section would be useful.
BTW2 does this mean im a member of the PC Chips lottery
