I have an old Pentium 3 system with a Tyan Thunder LE board and it has  
dual e100 devices.

Both devices require d101m_ucode.bin.

Still works after a decade. Sure it'll work fine without the firmware,  
but it works better with it.

A lot of devices will seem to work fine without the firmware, but they  
will work better with it.
