Argh!!!  Yes.  The nubus line should look something like:
grf0 at nubus0: 640 x 480 8 color MacVideo (RasterOps 264SE/30) display
and the grf0 should be grf1.  The problem seems to be that we're not
reading the info from the RasterOps card correctly.  I'll defer this
to Mike "NuBUS" Finch...

Growl...  If there's a new kernel in the morning, give it a shot... ;-)

I may have to get one.  The bookstore here in town is selling 'em for
$75...  Mike?  Have we seen all the possible bytelanes from nubus cards?
Do PDS cards work differently somehow?
