1.3.2 Value-added solutions
Temperature, fan, and voltage monitoring
The CPU temperature is monitored by the ASUS ASIC to prevent
overheating and damage. The system fan rotations per minute (RPM) is
monitored for timely failure detection. The system voltage levels are
monitored to ensure stable supply of current for critical components.
Dual function power switch
While the system is ON, pressing the power switch for less than 4 seconds
puts the system to sleep mode or to soft-off mode, depending on the BIOS
setting. Pressing the power switch for more than 4 seconds lets the
system enter the soft-off mode regardless of the BIOS setting.
Wake-Up support
The motherboard includes Wake-On-LAN, Wake-On-Ring, and BIOS
Wake-Up features.
ACPI ready
The Advanced Configuration power Interface (ACPI) provides more energy
saving features for operating systems that support OS Direct Power
Management (OSPM).
Concurrent PCI
This feature allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master buses to the
memory and processor.
Chassis intrusion detection
With this feature, the chassis intrusion circuitry logs “chassis-open” events
into the system BIOS. The onboard battery supports the chassis intrusion
detection feature even when the normal power is removed.
Smart BIOS
The 4Mbit firmware gives an easy-to-use interface that provides more
control and protection to the motherboard. The BIOS has a boot block
write protection and HD/SCSI/MO/ZIP/CD/Floppy boot selection, and is
Year 2000 certified.
1-4
Chapter 1: Product introduction
Compliance
Both the BIOS and the hardware levels of the motherboard meet the
stringent requirements for SDG 2.0 certification. The new SDG 2.0
requirements for systems and components are based on the following
high-level goals: support for Plug-and-Play compatibility and power
management for configuring and managing all system components, 32-bit
device drivers, and installation procedures for Windows NT/2000/XP.
Color-coded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as
required by the PC ‘99 specification.

System memory
2.5.1 Overview
80 Pins
104 Pins
The motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual Inline
Memory Module (DIMM) sockets. These sockets support up to 8GB
system memory using 184-pin unbuffered/registered ECC/non-ECC
PC2100/1600 DIMMs with Serial Presence Detect (SPD).
PP-DLW
PP-DLW 184-Pin DDR DIMM Sockets
A DDR DIMM is keyed with a notch so that it fits in only one direction.
DO NOT force a DIMM into a socket to avoid damaging the DIMM.
The DDR SDRAM technology evolved from the mainstream PC66, PC100,
PC133 memory known as Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM. DDR memory
however, has the ability to perform two data operations in one clock cycle,
thus providing twice the throughput of SDR memory. For example, a
200MHz DDR DIMM will support a 100MHz memory bus, and a 266MHz
DDR DIMM will support a 133MHz memory bus.
DDR Data Transfer Rate
DDR Base Frequency
266MHz
133MHz
200MHz
100MHz
A DDR DIMM has the same physical dimensions as an SDR DIMM, but it
has a 184-pin footprint compared to the 168-pin of the SDR DIMM. Also, a
DDR DIMM is single notched while an SDR DIMM is double notched.
Therefore, a DDR DIMM is not backward compatible with SDR, and should
be installed only in a socket specially designed for DDR DIMMs.

Chapter 2: Hardware information
2.5.2 Memory Configurations
You may install 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, or 2GB Double Data
Rate (DDR) DIMMs into the four DIMM sockets using the memory
configurations presented in this section.
Important notes on memory configurations
1. Installing DDR DIMMs other than the recommended configurations
may cause memory sizing error or system boot failure. See Table 1
for the recommended configurations.
2. Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs
using the recommended configurations.
3. Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB
(Front Side Bus). Refer to Table 2 below.
4. DO NOT mix unbuffered and registered DIMMs in any
configuration.

3. IDE connectors (40-1 pin IDE1, IDE2)
This connector supports the provided UltraDMA/100/66 IDE hard disk
ribbon cable. Connect the cable’s blue connector to the primary
(recommended) or secondary IDE connector, then connect the gray
connector to the UltraDMA/100/66 slave device (hard disk drive) and
the black connector to the UltraDMA/100/66 master device. It is
recommended that you connect non-UltraDMA/100/66 devices to the
secondary IDE connector. If you install two hard disks, 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. BIOS supports specific device bootup. If you have more than
two UltraDMA/100/66 devices, purchase another UltraDMA/100/66
cable. You may configure two hard disks to be both master devices
with two ribbon cables – one for the primary IDE connector and
another for the secondary IDE connector.
1. Pin 20 on each IDE connector is removed to match the covered
hole on the UltraDMA cable connector. This prevents incorrect
orientation when you connect the cables.
2. The hole near the blue connector on the UltraDMA/100/66 cable is
intentional.

ASUS PP-DLW motherboard
3.1
Starting up for the first time
1. After making all the connections, replace the system case cover.
2. Be sure that all switches are off.
3. Connect the power cord to the power connector at the back of the system
chassis.
4. Connect the power cord to a power outlet that is equipped with a surge
protector.
5. Turn on the devices in the following order:
a. Monitor
b. External SCSI devices (starting with the last device on the chain)
c. System power (if you are using an ATX power supply, you need to
switch on the power supply as well as press the ATX power switch on
the front of the chassis).
6. After applying power, the power LED on the system front panel case lights
up. For ATX power supplies, the system LED lights up when you press the
ATX power switch. If your monitor complies with “green” standards or if it
has a “power standby” feature, the monitor LED may light up or switch
between orange and green after the system LED turns on. The system
then runs the power-on tests. While the tests are running, the BIOS beeps
or additional messages appear on the screen. If you do not see anything
within 30 seconds from the time you turned on the power, the system may
have failed a power-on test. Check the jumper settings and connections or
call your retailer for assistance.
7. At power on, hold down <Delete> to enter BIOS Setup. Follow the
instructions in Chapter 4.
3.2
Powering off the computer
You must first exit the operating system and shut down the system before
switching off the power. For ATX power supplies, you can press the ATX
power switch after exiting or shutting down the operating system. If you
use Windows 2000/XP, click the Start button, click Shut Down, then click
the OK button to shut down the computer. The power supply should turn
off after Windows shuts down.
The message “You can now safely turn off your computer” does not
appear when shutting down with ATX power supplies.

Managing and updating your BIOS
To update the BIOS, use the AFUDOS.EXE utility in DOS mode.
1. Copy the AFUDOS.EXE utility and the latest BIOS file into a floppy
disk.
2. Insert the floppy disk into the drive, and type afudos at the prompt.
The screen displays the command usage of the utility.
3. Type the command line afudos /filename.rom, where “filename.rom”
means the original or latest BIOS file with which you wish to update
current BIOS on the motherboard.
Visit the ASUS website (www.asus.com) to obtain BIOS updates for
this motherboard.
4. Press Enter. The screen displays the status of the update and goes
back to the DOS prompt when done.
5. Boot the system with the new BIOS.

4.2
BIOS Setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware hub (FWH) 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 firmware hub.
The firmware hub 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.

Instructions for Installing the eeE Driver for SCO OpenServer
1.
Copy the eee.vol file to any directory, say /tmp, on the SCO system,
renaming the file as VOL.000.000. Also, make the file read-only by
using ‘chmod’.
For example,
# cp eeE.vol /tmp/VOL.000.000
# chmod 444 /tmp/VOL.000.000
2.
3.
4.
5.
If there is an older version of the eeE driver on the system, you must
first remove it. To do this, run ‘netconfig’. Remove all instances of the
“Intel ...” adapters. Exit netconfig without opting to relink the kernel.
Install the new driver using ‘custom’. When asked for the installation
media, choose ‘media images’, and type the directory path to the
VOL.000.000 file. (In step 1, if you copied it to /tmp, type ‘/tmp’). After
the installation of the driver is complete, exit ‘custom’.
Run ‘netconfig’ and add the adapters. For each adapter that is
present in the system, enter the appropriate TCP/IP parameters. By
default, the driver automatically detects the line speed and duplex
mode. If you want to force any of these settings, choose ‘Advanced
Options’ and set the speed and duplex modes. Exit ‘netconfig’ and
choose to relink the kernel.
Reboot the system. At the command prompt, type:
# reboot (or init 6)

1.
2.
3.
4.
Copy the eeE8.pkg file into any directory on the UnixWare system,
such as in the /tmp directory.
Make sure no other users are logged on and all user applications are
closed.
If there is an older version of the eeE driver on the system, first run
‘netcfg’ and remove any configured NICs. Exit ‘netcfg’. Remove the
old driver by typing ‘pkgrm eeE’. (You can find the driver version by
typing ‘pkginfo -l eeE’).
Install the new driver using ‘pkgadd’. For example:
# pkgadd -d /tmp/eeE8.pkg
