    and I was wondering if any one can help me with the bios settings Like what setting do I use for a Amd athlon xp 2.1ghz
    processor (when i start up it says it is 1248mhz) in the softmenu
    It has 256mb of ddr ram and two old 3gb scsi harddrives

    It is likely that you need to find the "front side bus" jumper and change it to 133 from 100.

    The board is identifying IDE devices and you don't have any.
