What X Server are you using? I use a TGA card on my AlphaStation 200,
so I use the XDecNetBSD. Since you mentioned plugging in a TGA &
having it work, I'll guess that you're using either XDecNetBSD or
XAlphaNetBSD (older name, dunno which 1.6.1 uses). I'm not sure what
VGA-style cards are supported under that X Server, so that may be the
issue. You would have a much better range of options & cards
available if you used the XFree86 X Server.
Just a thought,
