Notes To enter BIOS hold down Fn2 during boot. Fn12 for the boot menu. The athn0 failed to work initially but in OpenBSD 5.5 the driver now works:

s3:fred ~> ifconfig athn0
athn0: flags=8843 mtu 1500

Problems / Quirks

S3 stopped powering on - until I remembered that if I powered it on with the battery removed it would work and it did...

Resetting the BIOS this was done by unplugging the CMOS battery from the motherboard - will take some picture next time ;~)

The device does have an additional wireless card inside, and GSM sim card slot but they are disable by the BIOS - I haven't found a BIOS that I can flash to see if I can get these devices working...

The sim card will work if a GSM card is fitted - waiting for one to try this out.
