I don't know about having it fixed, but I believe the 164UX is the only
board with UW scsi and networking onboard. I like this board but it
doesn't have SRM, ARC, or AlphaBIOS. Only ARCSBIOS. If you need SRM or
AlphaBIOS, then the LX is probably the next best. I don't think the LX
has onboard scsi and networking though.
