I have a handful of cards, all ISA except for the S3 card in my AlphaStation
200. Luckily, every single card is usable as a console. Attempting to
start an X server does lock the machine solid, though. This is on
an AXPpci33.

Attempting to start X on my AS 200 with a PCI video card gives the exact
same error messages as the AXPpci33+ISA-VGA but doesn't lock the machine

I'm about to hit eBay to see if I can find a TGA card that will work
with X. There are PCI TGA/TGA2 cards, right?
