OK, feeling a little silly
but [cut and paste post from the W2kP sub-forum over atwww.msfn.org
Forget what I said before................
For my next 2000 workstation I plan on
these. [after four days of research.]http://www.newegg.ca...138293&Tpk=N68Shttp://www.biostar.c...on.php?S_ID=498
I just found out by going to VideoLAN.org 's site that I only need to add that
"libdvdcss" thing in Linux, the Windows version of VLC already has it, so that takes care of
playing dvds on a workstation.
I already tried it on this old 2008 era P4 single core and it looked fine, except for a little
jerkiness, at the beginning of STAR TREK (2009) I was surprised, I had always played
DVDs through the MDP-130, now I don't have to worry.
As stated in the reviews, the chipset is a little older but that works out fine for us,
nVidia has an on-line app that fits you with the best drivers for your application.
Better than Biostar's does, though go to the driver's tab in the page link above and you'll
see a 2000 compatible driver for the USB 2.0 that may or may not be newer than the one on the
As for Tomasz's Rollup I have full confidence in it, as I did have it working for the latest version
[2.0.1] of VLC, then I buggered my installation of MyHD somehow, and after not working for fourty
days, we're inundated with ships now coming through the St.Lawrence Seaway, so I haven't

So as for this mobo, I plan on ordering 3 or 4 with the 45 Watt Sempron 130's for PVR use,
and one with a dual or maybe even quad [and re-read what Syclone0044 did to get his
quad running] all for the price of one of those expensive industrial boards.
Then one without a cpu as a backup.
I mean one place wanted 375, the other 450 $.
Plus a much more trusted site has a combo deal on them.
