Yeah, that was me who posted the original question. Thanks for the
info. Your finding comes as no surprise.
Regarding the apparent lack of a _seperate_ usb header, I think you'll
find it's been incorporated into a larger header that includes sound
card/gameport pinouts for a custom backplate. I've certainly seen this
arrangement on other PC Chips MoBos (possibly that model even).
IIRC, the usb pins occupied one end of the larger header in the
standard Intel layout (but I wouldn't swear to this) which made it
possible for a standard USB socket backplate connector to be plugged in.
