IBM 6214M1U motherboard

I have a IBM 6214M1U motherboard. I have not been able to locate a motherboard installation manual online (not a detailed one). I would like to know whether the motherbaord can support usb 2 compatibility as well as to obtain the manual so i can set all onboard jumpers correctly. I would much appreciate help with this issue.

First the easy bit - a pci USB2 card ($US15 $AU20)) will solve the ports issue. Is this your machine - IBM IntelliStation E Pro Type 6204 and Type 6214. I have a hardware maintenance manual. Chances are your jumpers are already set correctly.

It would seem that the only jumper on the board is the cmos recovery. All other settings are done in the bios.

well thanks for the manual... i now know the board only supports usb 1 transfer rates... I'm still stuck with how to connect the "on" and "reset button" wires to the motherboard (from the front panel on the case) - couldn't find any diagram specifying how to connect them...
