>> what about video cards? i just saw 2MB cards on the compusys site.
>I guess they could put in a better card if you asked them to, any PCI card
>supported by XFree86 should work, eg Permedia, Matrox g200, TNT..
eh.. no ted.. any card supported by Xfree that is ported to Alpha..
Xfree 86 isn't Alpha :(
We also found the things like the Diamond Fire 1000 (Permedia) didn't always
work first time, until they had a bios flash.
Moral of the story, check the Redhat Video card support carefully before buying,
the list is severely curtailed over the normal XF86 stuff.
