if you can boot from an fdd of the mobo with the wrong bios i'd say keep
looking for the bios.
if not, and maybe even ANYWAY, you might want to look for a different
equivalent, or better, mobo, for cheap!

looks like paying < $40.00 for a mobo that serves 3800 users would not be
bad (compgeeks.com, etc).  That's less than $0.01/account!  A spare
would not be bad either.

good luck

also, does anyone else find it expensive to do fqdn on all incoming smtp traffic?
i can understand the need for accountability from real registered hosts,
but i'd guess millions will not have reverse dns entries.
