using the smbus

hello,

I have got a mainboard with a smbus connector. (this is an epia via mainboard).
I would know if I could use this smbus as an I2C bus. So, is it possible to send data through this bus. Is it possible to drive an pcf8574 (I2C I/O) or read an I2C real time clock e.g.

Does anyone know where I could find driver for win95/win98

thanks.

Look for the Linux lm-sensors package to see what's possible on a decent OS :D

On Windows, I know of MotherboardMonitor (http://mbm.livewiredev.com). There are some descriptions on their site dealing with extending the SMBus.

yes you can,

for that you have to confug. your device as slave device and than with SMBUS by using PCI you can comunicate with your device,
