    SIS=Chipset maker
    theyve been around a while and are know for making budget chipsets
    they are ususally slower, and cheaper than VIA, ALI, or intel
    but they temd to be pretty good stability and compatibility wise.

    EDIT BTW
    which board you got
    Dual P2 233@266
    144MB ram
    TNT-M64 POS

    Budget chipset maker, and a GOOD budget chipset maker.

    Only warning I have is with Linux and the SiS530 chipset; You have to do custom install or the memory handling gets messed (slow as molassoas).

    Also thier 'budget' name is something of a misnomer as most people tend to equate budget with inferior. The chipsets are solid and tested.
