Don't do this with Number 9 Imagine 128 cards and
XFree 3.3.5 or 3.3.6. Don't know about earlier version.
Fixed in XFree 3.9 and 4.0 according to Red Hat, but
I haven't tried it.
Switching from X to text works. Switching back gives you
a black screen. Typing blind doesn't work. All you can
do is hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot. Could probably telnet
in and shutdown, too. Everything works, except the video
card requires a hard reset.
