Owen, I have a 486 board you can have, but I don't have the instructions for
it. It is a tomato board, by Zida, and it looks quite modern.
It has an SIS 85C497 chipset on it if that is of any help, and an Award BIOS.
Built in FDC/HDC, EIDE by the looks of it. Even has a dedicated mouse port.
The catch, no instructions or cables, but you can have it for free if you
