I have a question: Is it possible for a bios upgrade to add an extra pci divisor to a board? Anyone else who knows for a fact feel free to weigh in. I'm not talking about an EPoX board specifically, I just want to know if it can be done at all.

From a general rule of thumb, a BIOS update cannot add features that are not existing on the board. It can only enable features that weren't active. In terms of PCI divisers, the physical components on the board such as PLL chip, need to have this capability. Mobo makers often to do not enable features on a BIOS for various reasons, such as stability... Then later update their bios if they feel comfortable with it, ie. got the bugs out. Just my opinioin.
