Wow, that was a quick answer! Anyway, I fear that my card may in fact be
the problem. It's a RasterOps 208 card. Yes, I'm running from one bit
mode. As to my grf0 file, I haven't actually read the file to see what it
says, and I haven't watched the dimensions it reports at startup because I
didn't know I should. I'll check it out when I get home and report back.
