Jumper settings on 8307-48U mainboard

\015 Doesn't IBM have documentation on jumper settings for service techs? If this is the case, none of my customers will ever buy IBM's in the future. I can go to Intel's website, ASUS's website, FIC's, Micronics, Compaq or HP (a little tough) and immediately download drivers and documentation. I need the jumper and Front Panel pinouts for this mainboard ASAP, anyone who can help I will greatly appreciate it. Thank you.\015
