I know that the system is actually a Crystal 945. I got the
touchscreen working via a dev driver from salt (so not tangent)
On the mainboard there is a conenctor: JFP1that goes to the ms4088
board. The mainboard connects to:
- power led
- hdd led
- main power switch
I can provide you with some photoos if you like.
As stated earlier: the sound is working by with very low volume levels

I sound working with the original crystal? I don't think tangent has
flshed their BIOS to another version.
In the crystal 945 specs I found that the're using a Realtek ALC262
with azalia codec, maybe this helps.
