Hmmmm...the plain K8V doesn't show up at all on the USA site...but I
found it on the GB site and the specs do differ slightly...the Lan
controller is listed as a Marvel 88E1000 whereas the K8V has a 3c940
which may or not be equivalent...the 3c940 is based on the Marvel Yukon
IP but may use different vendor and device ids...and the raid controller
is an 20376 rather than the 20378 on the deluxe...both show up in hwdata
but you would have to consult the source code (or Alan Cox) to see if
this is a potential problem ...AFAIK you really ought to be using the
SATA controller on the VIA south bridge...unless they saved 10 cents by
deleting the connectors from the BoM.

Anyhow, I see that your bios versioning is different from that of my K8V
Deluxe...heaven only knows what else is different.
