Actually, I have an internal video card for it. ;-) Now, whether the Lapis
card works or not is another issue, but if I understand correctly, the IIsi
memory mapping is similar enough to the IIci's that this should solve the
memory mapping problem. Of course, to make the situation more complicated,
I use a ComboCache IIsi which is a cache card similar to the IIci but has
two PDS slots on it where one is the Lapis card and the other is the
Farallon Ethernet card (register-compatible with the Apple specs). Do you
need information about this card? I remember someone asking about Ethernet
cards a while back.

Anyway, I had mentioned this in reply to your inquiry about what machines
people are running MacBSD on and I volunteered my machine which I would
like to run it on...
