It does require banked devices for the Retina-Z2 (I think I mentioned this
more than once on this list). Unless someone carried over the banked device
pager code to 1.0, yes, this also means you need a 0.9 kernel. However, I'd
strongly suggest NOT using Xamiga24 for the Retina-Z2, the server would
*crawl* even with banked device support.

I *think* the driver has some problems initializing interlaced
screens. At least, I couldn't open any such screens with a simple test program
that just opens such a screen and draws some test patterns on them.
