I'm not 100% sure, but I remember reading that the GENERIC kernels do not
support color X, which is a shame because the generic kernels are the
only ones I can find that will work on my Quadra 700. So, you'll have to
compile your own kernel with the color lkm stuff. Don't ask me how to,
though, because i'm just as clueless as you are on how to do it. I
believe it says how to compile your own kernel in the macbsd docs on
puma.macbsd.com, in the HOWTO section.
