28.2 Step 2: Configure the Motherboard
Motherboards differ greatly in how much configuration they require and exactly how it is done. Most recent motherboards use only one or two jumpers, or are configured through software during BIOS Setup. Older motherboards often have dozens of jumpers to set such things as CPU voltage, FSB speed, and CPU multiplier. Refer to your motherboard manual to determine the proper settings for your processor and memory, and make any required changes before proceeding. The D845WNL has only one setup jumper, which we leave as is for the moment.
