I think that it's not Chaintech 5SBM - it has different BIOS ID: "07/04/95-SiS-5501-5503-2A5ICC39-01".

Dear Rainbow,
You don't think it's a Chaintech ?
On the MB itselfs is written as model (between the PCI-slots) 5SBM S202.
Any idea how I could find the right bios-update to eliminate this big Millenium Bug actually in it ?

Shows 07/04/95-SiS-5501-5503-2A5ICC39-01 in modbin, this is what it will show on startup. Double-check the string you wrote down at startup.
