Tsubai has written patches to XF86 4.0 for NetBSD/macppc that
allow you to use Rage 128AGP in the G4 in acclerated 32bpp color. XF86 4.0
is *supposed* to include a formal release of XF for Mac and is planned to
be merged into NetBSD at some point. Tsubai posted a patch for XF 4.x
under -current. It's in the mailing list arc's, or if you can't find it I
can email it to you if you ask.
