[Wolves] I'm after an old motherboard...

Would any of you fine upstanding LUGgers happen to have any old
motherboards lying around?  Specifically one that accepts an AMD 500
K7 CPU (that's the one that came in the big surround like the PIII)
and uses PC 133 RAM.  The one I have SuSE 10.3 running on seems to
have a slight problem.  It doesn't seem to want to accept all the RAM
I have to use.  According to the manual it'll accept up to 756mb of PC
133.  It doesn't like anything bigger than a 256 RAM stick so 512 is
out.  Consequently I have 3 x 256mb sticks.  But when I install them
it will only read up to just under 400mb as being installed.  I have
tried a single stick in all slots and they all work.  I've upgraded
the BIOS as far as I can..no difference.  I've checked the BIOS
settings to see if there is anything hindering it..again, nothing.

Let's say it is frustrating to say the least.  Don't ask what the
board is because at this point in time I cannot remember.  I think it
was something like a Soltek but am not sure.

Oh, the RAM is all fine.  I've tried it in another PC and no problems.
 It's just this mobo  :-(
