          Hi Roy,


          I was trying to look for the information you asked.


          Actually, i will explain how i obtained these information.


          Assuming that you are using an Intel Motherboard.


          First step: Identify which motherboard it is

          Second Step: Go onto the Technical Product Specification.

          Third Step: Note down the ICH model like 82801GR

          Fourth Step: Go onto the website http://ark.intel.com

          Fifth Step: Paste the ICH category in the search box

          Sixth Step: Download the Datasheet


          Check in the Datasheet for the addresses that you are looking for.


          Note: Example: http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/datashts/307013.htm

          Page 242/437


          Hope this helps a bit.


          Kind Regards,
