BIG upgrade:

I found a motherboard in my garage that I must have purchased long ago and forgot about it.
So I am going to put it in.
It’s an Intel 430tx motherboard.
Intel Space walker / shuttle.

This should fix the DIMM memory socket problem I was having with the other motherboard so I can use
64mb of RAM.

Nice, the cost-reduced version of the legendary Shuttle "Spacewalker" HOT-569. That board could hit 90MHz FSB, unheard of on the 430TX chipset. Most PCI cards crapped out at that point.

What is the higher end Intel shuttle 430tx model ?
The only thing this does not have is onboard audio.

You keep referring to the board as 'Intel shuttle 430tx'. Why?

The board is manufactured by Shuttle Inc. Shuttle Inc. and Intel (or Intel Corporation) are completely independent entities. Intel only manufactured the chipset, they were not involved in manufacturing this motherboard. Same as any ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI board with an Intel chipset.

The board model you're using is called 'Spacewalker HOT-569A' and it was made by Shuttle Inc.
Intel only provided the chipset.
