Question

Hi all... I'm new here and happened to come across this website through a search engine... anyways, here's my dilemma:

I have a refurbished Intel 815 chipset based motherboard, manufactured by IBM (The model number on the PCB reads 06P2525 01) with some issues.

Firstly, the BIOS is in German... i can understand some of it, but not everything. Any idea if i can flash it with an English one? If so, where can i find one? I searched through the IBM website, but did not get anything useful.

Next, I have no idea where to connect the front panel LEDs and stuff on this thing. It powers up automatically without the need for a power button, but i would surely to like to have the option of using one nevertheless.

There are certain weird connectors that i have not come across in motherboards before. I wish i had the manual but that too was not included in the box i got it in. It would be great if anyone else using the same board can give me a link to an online manual.

Also, there is an extra piece of circuitry sitting next to the battery. When i enquired with the vendor what it was, he says its the bios but i'm not too sure if he answered corrrectly. Is this small circuit board present in all of these motherboards?

Thanks a lot for reading... waiting for some answers...
