Anyone try it on a Mac IIx with a Daystar Turbo 040 33? I dumped all of 
my MacBSD stuff when I got the board. Guess I should give it a go.

A small aside. What killed BSD for me the last time was never being able 
to get dt to work, and thus never being able to use my monitor. I simply 
don't have the room to install a terminal, nor would I wish to add yet 
another piece of hardware in my house. :(

Please, someone, focus more on support for video cards. I have a standard 
apple video card (supported on the hardware compatibility list). Not to 
nag, but my support really waned after about three weeks of no success. 
Still, we live in hope. ;)

Regards, etc.
