    AMR slot on motherboard

    Hi,
    I've recently dug up an old motherboard from my basement. There's nothing wrong with it, in fact I'm running it right now with XP (SP2) and 256MB SDRAM.

    My question regarding this mobo is what is what kind of hardware would fit an AMR slot? I noticed on the board it has a small (about 1.5" long) slot above all the PCI slots so I looked in the manual and it refers to it as an AMR slot. What is it for?

    Thanks,
    Tyler

    The wikipedia page has a good description on it. And like the article kind of says, the slot is somewhat worthless. It was a neat idea but it also came about at a time when people were using modems less and less.
