Additional Notes

This is straight from the manufacturer's website. I would provide the URL, but it's ASP and requires user input. http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=VIA_PLE_133_5a&class=mb is for the motherboard that I'm searching for, but the driver should work with all MSI "VIA" 686 chipsets, I would assume. The website claims that the driver is for "all Windows".

The board I'm using is an MS-6368 VER:5 from MSI, in an AOpen-branded case.
