I tried out the Descent 3 demo that came with the RH7.0 box set on a celeron
450 with 128Mb and a Matrox Millenium 1 4Mb video card and got approx 0.1 fps!
I gotta presume it's a graphic card thing but I've no idea how to
troubleshoot it. I might even go buy something from them!
Tried it on a Gateway box 800MHz, 128Mb Intel 810i on-board graphics (or is
that sound? Well, you know the mobo I mean anyhow) and it crashed the
graphic card. I had to kill X to restore the correct resolution.
