You may install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB unbuffered ECC or non-ECC DDR DIMMs into the DIMM sockets...

Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency... For optimum compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor... Refer to the DDR Qualified Vendors List on the ASUS website for details...

Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 8 GB system memory when you install four 2 GB DDR memory modules...

This motherboard does not support memory modules made up of 128 Mb chips or double sided x16 memory modules...

Three DDR DIMMs intalled into any three memory sockets will function in single-channel mode...

This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS... You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data... The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords...

To erase the RTC RAM:

1... Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord...

2... Remove the onboard battery...

3... Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3... Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2...

4... Re-install the battery...

5... Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer...

6... Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data...

Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position... Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

These connectors are for Ultra DMA 100/66/33 signal cables... The Ultra DMA 100/66/33 signal cable has three connectors: a blue connector for the primary IDE connector on the motherboard, a gray connector for an Ultra DMA 100/66 IDE master device (hard disk drive), and a black connector for an Ultra DMA 100/66/33 IDE slave device (optical drive/ hard disk drive)... If you install two hard disk drives, you must configure the second drive as a slave device by setting its jumper accordingly... Refer to the hard disk documentation for the jumper settings...

Pin 5 on the connector is removed to prevent incorrect cable connection when using a FDD cable with a covered Pin 5...

Pin 20 on the IDE connectors are removed to match the covered hole on the Ultra DMA cable connector... This prevents incorrect insertion when you connect the IDE cable...

Use the 80-conductor IDE cable for Ultra DMA 100/66/33 IDE devices...

5... 2 BIOS Setup program

This motherboard includes a Flash ROM that you can update using the provided utility described in section 4... 1 Managing and updating your BIOS...

Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring your system, or prompted to Run Setup... This section explains how to configure your system using this utility...

Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you may want to change the configuration of your computer in the future... For example, you may want to enable the security password feature or make changes to the power management settings... This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the Flash ROM...

The Flash ROM on the motherboard stores the Setup utility... When you start up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program... Press <Delete> during the Power-On Self Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility, otherwise, POST continues with its test routines...

If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis... You can also restart by turning the system off and then back on... Do this last option only if the first two failed...

The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible... It is a menu-driven program, which means you can scroll through the various sub-menus and make your selections among the predetermined choices...

Because the BIOS software is constantly being updated, the following BIOS setup screens and descriptions are for reference purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen...

6... 1 RAID

The server system/motherboard comes with the AdaptecAdaptecAdaptecAdaptecAdaptec HostRAID HostRAID HostRAID HostRAID HostRAID technology embedded in the Intel 6300ESB Southbridge to support up to two SATA hard disk drives and RAID 0, 1, and JBOD configurations...

Refer to the RAID definitions below...

6... 1... 16... 1... 16... 1... 16... 1... 16... 1... 1 RAID configurationsRAID configurationsRAID configurationsRAID configurationsRAID configurations

RAID 0RAID 0RAID 0RAID 0RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write data in parallel, interleaved stacks... Two hard disks perform the same work as a single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone, thus improving data access and storage... Use of two new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup...

RAID 1RAID 1RAID 1RAID 1RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to a second drive... If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive... This RAID configuration provides data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system... Use two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup... The new drive must be of the same size or larger than the existing drive...

JBODJBODJBODJBODJBOD (Spanning) stands for Just a Bunch of DisksJust a Bunch of DisksJust a Bunch of DisksJust a Bunch of DisksJust a Bunch of Disks and refers to hard disk drives that are not yet configured as a RAID set... This configuration stores the same data redundantly on multiple disks that appear as a single disk on the operating system... Spanning does not deliver any advantage over using separate disks independently and does not provide fault tolerance or other RAID performance benefits...

If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID set, copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a floppy disk before you install an operating system to the selected hard disk drive... Refer to section 2... RAID driver installation for details...

The motherboard supports Serial ATA hard disk drives for RAID set configuration... For optimal performance, install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating a disk array...

To install the SATA hard disks for RAID configuration:

1... Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the system user guide...

2... Connect a SATA signal cable to the signal connector at the back of each drive and to the SATA connector on the motherboard...

3... Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive...

Replace <filename... tar... gz> with the specific filename of the driver...

The currently running kernel must match the version and configuration of the installed kernel sources for the build to work properly, Reboot the system now if you have just recompiled the kernel... The RPM functionality has only been tested in Red Hat distributions...

1... Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice... For example, use /home/username/e1000 or /usr/local/src/e1000...

2... Untar or unzip the archive... tar zxf e1000-x... x... x... tar... gz

3... Change to the driver src directory... cd e1000-x... x... x/src/

4... Compile the driver module... makenstall

The binary is installed as:

/lib/modules/[KERNEL_VERSION]/kernel/drivers/net/e1000... o

The locations listed above are default install locations and might not be correct for some Linux distributions... For more information, see the ldistrib... txt file included in the driver tar...

5... Install the module... insmod e1000 <parameter>=<value>

6... Assign an IP address to the interface by entering the following: ifconfig ethx <IP_address>

where x is the interface number...

7... To verify if the interface works, enter the following: ping <IP_address>

where <IP_address> is the IP address of another system on the same subnet as the system being tested...
