ok...i've looked all over this site and many others to try and identify my MB. all i'm trying to do is upgrade my memory from SIMMS to DIMM and i think i have to move a jumper or 2. i can't find my MB website cuz i don't know the name so here is my BIOS ID string....hope someone can help me: 03/03/97-i430vx-02071997c-00
i know...it's an ancient system, but we live w/ what we got. if some one could direct me towards a site to where i can get some info on my MB, i would REALLY appreciate it! (or...if you already know which jumpers to move around...feel free to post that as well!!)

thanks in advance for any help...it is truly apprecicated
