Floppy Disk Controller:

This option enables or disables the onboard Floppy Disk controller.

Onboard Serial Port :

This item determines which I/O addresses the onboard Serial Port controller will access.

[Auto]: The system automatically select an I/O address for the onboard Serial Port.

[3F8/IRQ4, 2F8/IRQ3, 3E8/IRQ4, 2E8/IRQ3]: Allows you to manually select an I/O address for the onboard Serial Port.

[Disabled]: Disables the onboard Serial Port.

Onboard Parallel Port:

This item specifies the I/O address used by the parallel port.

[Disabled]: This option prevents the parallel port from accessing any system resources. When the value of this option is set to [Disabled], the printer port becomes unavailable.

[378/IRQ7]: This option allows the parallel port to use [378/IRQ7] as its I/O port address. The majority of parallel ports on computer systems use IRQ7 and I/O Port 378H as the standard setting.

[278/IRQ5]: This option allows the parallel port to use [278/IRQ5] as its I/O port address.

[3BC/IRQ7]: This option allows the parallel port to use [3BC/IRQ7] as its I/O port address.

!Parallel Port Mode:

This item specifies the parallel port mode.

[Normal]: Allows the standard parallel port mode to be used.

[SPP]: (Standard Parallel Port) Allowsbi-directionalparallel port operation at normal speed.

[EPP]: (Enhanced Parallel Port) Allowsbi-directionalparallel port operation at maximum speed.

[ECP]: (Extended Capabilities Port) Allowsbi-directionalparallel port operation at a speed faster than the normal mode’s data transfer rate.

[ECP+EPP]: Allows parallel port operation at ECP and EPP mode.

!EPP Mode Select:

This item selects the EPP mode.

!ECP Mode Use DMA:

This item selects the DMA channel of the parallel port.
