This board has one ISA slot, but may be, I have a board with more! (but this will have a slower CPU on it!)

What CPU class do you want? Pentium, Pentium II or Pentium III??

So I think the highest class is a PIII, but those boards mostly have only one ISA slot, but this should be enough for your AWE32!

You can still get boards with isa slots.

Have seen 478 and 775 boards with ISA slots, but for consumer boards ISA ended after PIII and socket A/462 iirc.

I have plenty of motherboards with ISA and PCI slots. Slot 1 Pentium I, II and III with CPU of various speeds, and a rare slot 1 Celeron adapter. Also boards with PGA 370 CPU socket for Celeron and Pentium with ISA and PCI slots. Can soon build a working system if needed, as I have all that is needed.

478 are pretty easy to get, "business" computers still had them in for awhile. Cant remember which machines, but probably some of the Lenovo M5x range or HP DC7x00.

775 you can get, but seem a little more specialised (i.e. you need to go and buy them separately, machines dont ship with them) but will take a Core2 chip - which is pretty modern.

I have a PIII Motherboard complete of CPU and X2 ISA Slots. The Motherboard is Near Mint.

I have a PII setup (333 I believe) we can look into getting your way, including a Voodoo 2 card, TNT2, etc.

PM if you're interested mate ;)
