The 0211 bios does not support the 3.2G Pentium D (nor does it support Core 2) but the 3.2G cpu does work.

Will there ever be a BIOS update? ASUS seems to completely ignore this motherboard - it doesn't show up in product or support/download lists.

I suspect it's very similar to the P5L2D and that BIOS would work if you would just update the signature.

Right now, I can't even use the E-mail Support form since it requires non-empty boxes for several fields yet won't let you put anything in those fields.

P5LD2-TVM/S is very possibly a proprietary mainboard made by Asus for a major system assembler..  All retail mainboard will show up in the support listings.

You mean:
"B5LD2-TVM/S is very possibly..."

but,
it's not supposed to be. I am a retailer who bought it from my regular ASUS dealing wholesaler. It was OEM packaging rather than retail.

It is also listed at many on-line retailers, at least here in Canada.

Makes no difference.  It isn't a retail mainboard.  It is a 'White Box' part dumped on the market but a major system assembler when they decided not to make the system anymore.  You might try contacting Asus .  As you know, there can be significant differences, especially in terms of BIOS implementations, between proprietary mainboards and retail models.  Once Asus sells the board to the system assembler, that the end of the story..no support...
