    I am trying to find info on which jumpers to move to "reset" the bios
    on my slackware system.

    The proccesor is a cyrix 6x86 pr233mx

    I have googled myself until I gave up and ended up here.

    Initially the cooling fan failed and the kernel wouldn't load.

    I set the box aside for months, and my S.I.L. gave me a fan.

    then the system complained of a dead cmos battery, so I replaced it.

    I have tried setting the defaults in the Bios but the kernel still
    won't load.

    I am hoping that If I can _reset_ the bios via jumpers that I may have
    my machine back. since that seems to be the S.O.P. when replacing
    the battery. But i can't find any info on the board on the web.

    Never met that board, but this procedure works for most:

    - unplug machine at wall socket
    - remove cmos battery
    - short battery terminals together for ~30sec

    I have a copy of the manual I downloaded from the Asus website when the
    board was still fairly new. May I email it to you?
