Sounds like you had a different problem than me. Mine is just then one
short, and I think it just might be the flash memory chips. I'm gonna try
calling CPUMicromart or some other places like that, try to find out what
parts are/might be bad. Then hand it over to my brother for the solder
work... He has a 166 of mine, that suffered Heat Death. He should be done
with it by now...
P.S. Thanks for the document links, but I have checked them all
before...except the ek-mults-in.ps.gz. I'll check it out now...
