Athlon + PC133: no ECC?

I've got a Athlon 700 on the ASUS K7V. I've got PC133 ECC memory, but when
I set the BIOS to ECC for the RAM, the machine refuses to boot. Set it back
to believing it has just PC133 SDRAM, the machine runs fine. The manual
states support for ECC SDRAM, and the BIOS agrees, but I cannot get it to
run in that state.

I'll want to sort this out before buying 64 of them. 8-)
