I try to describe the type of card I have. It is nearly full length PCI
card, equipped with 16 MB of video RAM, two jumpers, one round knob to set
the video modes and on the slot side, there's video output connector to the
monitor and one for a "shutter device" (3D-glasses).

The card reads "PBXGB-CA".

I also have this video card in a smaller version, same connectors, but less
video RAM written "PBXGB-CA".

For both cards I have the complete documentation.

;-) Sorry... it developed out of the mySQL thread and myself moaning about
not being able to test my favorite database on my Alpha with netBSD ;-)
