Re: wake-on-lan with Abit KV-80

 In case this is still unsolved...   On my Tyan-based cluster (or, actually
I think this was on a cheapo desktop P4 cluster, so not even AMD64), I
haven't had success with WOL either, but it was the other way around, IIRC.
I think they would wake on lan only if they'd booted and then shut down
(using ACPI to power down).  They wouldn't wake from the initial power on

 On the Tyan S2881, besides the main BIOS setup, the tg3 network hardware
has a separate setup thing where you can config WOL or not, and the timeout
for its config prompt.

 Hope this gives you some ideas.
