Intersting. There is a current snapshot which I am running on many

http://www.tame.com has a great list of HP serial #s and their function.
Below are the 2 cards you mentioned. I dont know the color depth on
the 1416 (I assume it's 8bit). I guess the function the same, eh?
Maybe the 1416 is 2D accelerated...(but accel not sported?)
A1416-66571: HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR PCB,(1280x1024),("VRX COLOR 2D"),
98550-66573: HI-RES. COLOR VIDEO PCB,1280x1024x8 BITPLANES,(98571X)
