Hehe... Belgians are nicer than I thought :wink:

4 hours after sending a dozen of emails to guys who posted at old forums, a Belgian guy set up an ftp server on his PC for me to download the manual and an .iso image of the installation CD.... :D

Edwin, you've got Kaimei stuff at your site... want a copy of this manual?
It's a 14.5 MB PDF!!!

ajzchips, can you please upload that to my site?

server: mobokive.dyndns.org
username and password both "upload"

Both the PDF and installation CD would be a good addition to my FTP.

It's uploading. Edwin could then download it from your server, if that's ok with you.

I've included (in the large ZIP file):
Manual
Install CD
Mobo picture
Latest BIOS (not patched).

[edit] Done. Leave it up there for a day or two so Edwin may download it.

Hard Junk, you've got lots of subfolders over there that are empty.
Do you need our help to fill them up? What kind of server/connection are you using? It's quite fast.

Maybe the pictures inside (if any) are saved using too high resolution. If you have some PDF creator installed, try recreating the PDF.
I have FreePDF v0.95 beta http://www.webxd.com/zipguy/freepdf.htm
+RedMon http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/redmon/
+GhostScript 7.22 http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... _id=103879
(using postscript driver for HP Color LaserJet 5/5M PS)

It takes a while to configure but it's free and works fine. You can then create PDF files from any application that can print - including Acrobat Reader (BTW.: I use v4.05 - displaying is much faster than in 5.x versions)

Yesterday I downloaded (but haven't tried yet) a PDF to GIF utility. That might be useful, but leaving it as a GIF.

BTW, the PDF manual is visibly a scanned manual. Jamicon must have GIF2PDFed it or something.

Its an old K6-2 500Mhz on a VA-503+ running Slackware 8 on a DSL connection.
I've got 4GB left on the upload space and 30GB on the FTP download (Connect Anonymous to the FTP and you'll see what's on there).

I could always use help collecting manuals, BIOS and drivers...use the upload as a dump site.
