:-)  It works for basic frame buffers that lie in normal NuBus card
space (not super space).  The PDS seems to look just like a NuBus
(handy, that--Apple did some things right)--at least for video/ethernet.

Binaries for NetBSD/Sun3, SunOS/Sun3, or NetBSD/amiga should work.
I would be much more inclined to look for binaries for the NetBSD
systems.  If they aren't available, I might be able to work something
out with my company since we have the Motif 1.2.4 sources...  No
promises, no guarantees, nothing real soon.
