I got XP installed this morning, no major problems except getting a cd-rom running with the hard drive and after everthing was installed I keep getting this annoying "soft modem" found that XP can't find a driver for and it appears to have something to do with the chipset as the Ali USB wouldn't work at first until I removed the soft modem.
Later after removing the special CSEL IDE cable I made the USB started working correctly (the IDE cd-rom I was using would only work as a cable select for slave, I jumped line 28 to ground for the slave cdrom and line 28 to +5volt for the hard drive as master after setting the hard drive jumper config to CSEL for master/slave)
Does anyone know if there is a Ali softmodem driver for the M1525-B1 controller? I am curious to see if there is actually a "third" modem on these things (1st modem was the regular 56k modem that has the 4 screws, the 2nd was the modem on the HPNA cards, and perhaps there is a 3rd built into the IO controller?)
My next step is to contact ICS and see if I can get a MK712 XP/2000 driver for the touchscreen controller... No promises yet, but I will see what I can do.
