Chapter 1 Introduction
Introduction
The MBC-6210 is the world’s first MicroPCI CPU card. It integrates the
Intel 440BX or 440ZX AGPset and supports a Socket 370 connector for
Intel Celeron or Pentium III processors with frequencies of up to 600MHz.
The MicroPCI sockets used are SO-DIMM 144-pin sockets that has 120
pins used for standard PCI signals and other pins for VGA and LAN
signals.
Equipped with 2 MicroPCI sockets, users get to choose to insert
VGA/LAN/SCSI MicroPCI cards. The DMPCI MicroPCI to PCI adapter can
also accommodate these MicroPCI cards.
The MBC-6210 is designed with a PCI bridge that is able to support 6 PCI
master interface, unlike ordinary CPU cards, which only has 5-PCI master
support. It comes with 2 MicroPCI and 4 master PCI interface.
MicroPCI CPU cards offer more reliability in performance and less failure
rate in production by integrating all components in only one side of the
PCB board. With components on one side, better design and improved
quality control is achieved. The MBC-6210 MicroPCI CPU card is
compatible with all types of PICMG backplane.

CPU Installation
The MBC-6210 Industrial CPU Card supports a Socket 370 connector
processor socket for Intel Celeron processors.
The Socket 370 connector comes with a lever to secure the processor.
Before inserting the CPU, make sure the lever is raised perpendicular to
the socket and the notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds with the
notch on the inside of the socket.
After you have installed and lock the processor into place, check if the
jumpers for the CPU type and speed are correct.
NOTE: Ensure that the CPU heat sink and the CPU top surface are in total
contact to avoid CPU overheating problem that would cause your
system to hang or be unstable.
MicroPCI Daughter Card Installation
The MBC-6210 CPU card is integrated with two MicroPCI sockets that
use SO-DIMM 144-pin connectors. These sockets can accommodate the
VGA, Ethernet or SCSI MicroPCI daughter cards.
To insert the MicroPCI daughter cards, position it at 30°to the PCB and
gently push it into the MicroPCI connector. (The card will not fit when
inserted at an angle of 45°or 15°). Once inserted, slowly press the card
towards the PCB until it locks on both sides to the clips of the connector.
Screw the card to the PCB to secure the installation.

BIOS Introduction
The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your computer
system’s ROM supports Intel Pentium II processors in a standard IBMAT compatible I/O system. The BIOS provides critical low-level support
for a standard device such as disk drives, serial ports and parallel ports. It
also adds virus and password protection as well as special support for
detailed fine-tuning of the chipset controlling the entire system.
BIOS Setup
The Award BIOS provides a Setup utility program for specifying the
system configurations and settings. The BIOS ROM of the system stores
the Setup utility. When you turn on the computer, the Award BIOS is
immediately activated. Pressing the <Del> key immediately allows you to
enter the Setup utility. If you are a little bit late pressing the <Del> key,
POST (Power On Self Test) will continue with its test routines, thus
preventing you from invoking the Setup. If you still wish to enter Setup,
restart the system by pressing the ”Reset” button or simultaneously
pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. You can also restart by
turning the system Off and back On again. The following message will
appear on the screen:
Press
<DEL>
to
Enter
Setup
In general, you press the arrow keys to highlight items, <Enter> to select,
the <PgUp> and <PgDn> keys to change entries, <F1> for help and <Esc>
to quit.
When you enter the Setup utility, the Main Menu screen will appear on
the screen. The Main Menu allows you to select from various setup
functions and exit choices.

SDRAM RAS-to-CAS Delay
When DRAM is refreshed, both rows and columns are addressed
separately. This field allows you to determine the timing of transition from
Row Address Strove (RAS) to Column Address Strobe (CAS). The
default setting is 3.
SDRAM RAS Precharge Time
The precharge time is the number of cycles it takes for the RAS to
accumulate its charge before DRAM refresh. If insufficient time is
allowed, refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM may fail to retain data.
The default setting is 3.
SDRAM CAS Latency Time
When synchronous DRAM is installed, the number of clock cycles of
CAS latency depends on the DRAM timing. Do not reset this field from
the default value specified by the system designer. The default value is 3.

IDE HDD Block Mode
This field allows your hard disk controller to use the fast block mode to
transfer data to and from your hard disk drive.
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave PIO
These fields allow your system hard disk controller to work faster. Rather
than have the BIOS issue a series of commands that transfer to or from the
disk drive, PIO (Programmed Input/Output) allows the BIOS to
communicate with the controller and CPU directly.
The system supports five modes, numbered from 0 (default) to 4, which
primarily differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select the
best available mode.
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave UDMA
These fields allow your system to improve disk I/O throughput to

Chapter 8 LANDesk Client Manager
Introduction
LANDesk Client Manager (LDCM 3.1) provides the capability for
managing components (network interface cards, memory, printers,
software applications, etc.) within a PC system. It uses the Desktop
Management Interface (DMI) standard established by the Desktop
Management Task Force (DMTF). Manageable components can be
viewed, monitored, and administrated across multiple platforms, either
locally or remotely on a network.
The LDCM package has been implemented in two different ways: a user
(client/local) version and an administrative version (Remote Companion).
The user version provides the ability to only manage the local PC. The
administrative version allows a network administrator to manage the local
PC and other PC nodes on the network. This means that the administrative
version has the ability to gather information about remote PCs, as well as
remotely controlling the PCs. The remote access is based upon granted
rights by the managed client.
LDCM provides the user with self-help diagnostics, including a PC health
meter, local alerting of potential problems, and hardware and software
inventory. Automatic polling and alerting of memory and hardware
conditions and predictive failure mechanisms minimize downtime and
increase effective troubleshooting. LDCM can take periodic “snapshots ”
of critical configuration files for easy change management and restoration
when needed.
To use LDCM, your computer must meet the following requirements:
l
Operating System: Windows 95, Windows NT 3.51, or Windows
NT4.0
l
Memory: about 200KB
l
Disk Storage Space: 3-5MB
l
Hardware System: a DMI BIOS is required for full LDCM
functionality
For network computers, the following requirements also apply:
l
Protocols: IPX or IP (WinSock-enabled) communication protocol
loaded on the client
l
Hardware Interfaces: a network card for communication on the
network

Installing SCSI Driver for DOS
The DOSSETUP.EXE program installs the 16bit ASPI drivers, SCSI CDROM driver and the Microsoft CD extensions. This program will
automatically create or modify the AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS
files on your hard drive. To complete CD-ROM installation, you will need
MSCDEX.EXE pre-installed on the hard drive or on a floppy disk.
MSCDEX.EXE is on MS-DOS 6.2x Setup Disk Number One. Be sure that
you know the location and the path of MSCDEX.EXE prior to running
DOSSETUP.EXE. The hard drive will need MS-DOS 6.xx installed or it will
need to be formatted with the /s option (i.e. - bootable format) prior to
running Initio DOSSETUP.EXE. From the x:\ DOS prompt type
"DOSSETUP" and press "enter". NOTE: x = drive letter of floppy drive
used. After DOSSETUP.EXE completes, be sure to reboot system so
changes take effect.
