Re: help!!! dont have a local connection or ethernet controller,

This isn't a BIOS issue but it sure sounds like you didn't reinstall the chipset driver after installing XP.

 

The correct order to reinstall is:

XP

Desktop System Softare (System Utilities)

Chipset Driver

Video Driver

Audio Driver

Network Driver

Etc.

 

All drivers for this system are here.
