Note that although many of these cards are 8-bit or 24-bit, no one
is actually booting into MacBSD at that color depth.    Before you
boot into MacBSD you have to set your monitors control panel to 1-bit.

These video cards have been reported to work:

   Toby Frame
   Mac II High-Resolution
   Apple 8.24
   Micron Color 30 8-bit (PDS, SE/30)

This was reported to work earlier and recently found to not work:

   RasterOps 264SE/30 (PDS, SE/30)

These were reported as not working:

   MicroXeed 24-bit
   Radius 24XP
   Supermac 8/24 (size is reported as 83? x 6??) 
   Magic 8-bit

If you know the status of any other video cards, please report it to
me.  Also feel free to correct the status of any of the above cards.
When you report the status of a card, please tell me the name of
the card, its type (NuBus or PDS), and the computer you are using it
