Current Tyan motherboards ( S2466N-4M and S2468) have a BIOS issue where 
some video cards with large ROM address space conflict with other PCI card 
When this occurs, then the other card does not work, or the video does no 
Tyan IS working on this.
For example their latest BIOS beta for the 2466N-4M has more space 
available, at the expense of the PXE boot code portions.

With our best regards,
