I have an SE/30 with a macronix 24 bit colorboard.  I think the 
colorboard is the problem.  I am currently trying to find another 
computer to test my successfully installed NetBSD HD on.  I will report 
the results.  In the meantime, I would like to do my part to help with 
solving the video card incompatibility problem.  Please let me know how I 
can help.
