I've been trying to hunt ADD2-N card for my Asus P5B-VM, but where I live,
I've seen only cards that are told to work with 915G/945G, for instance a

gotten X to display anything on the ADD2 display."
and later he postes a solution
"The eventual critical step appeared to be to load the Intel driver under
windows. After this, I was able to get BIOS, linux console, and X on the
Is this mobo specific problem?
