Complete crap.  All the ASUS motherboards have NCR support in their
BIOS.

No.

If the motherboard has an onboard NCR controller, it will have support
for it in the BIOS.  _ALL_ ASUS motherboard support the NCR chips either
onboard or on the SC200 cards.  Many other motherboards have NCR support;
Soyo is one other manufacturer that does PBurst motherboards that have
NCR support.
