I determined what the problem was.  I was attempting to determine which
framebuffer to use by putting them both in the machine at once and testing
output.  I had the PMAGB-BA in slot 2.  I removed the PMAG-BA card from slot
one, moved the PMAGB-BA to one, and it works just fine.  Thanks for the

Simon, there were two crystals on the board, but the only jumpers were
labeled OSC0 and PROM.

I would expect the PMAGB-BA to drive it.  Does your PMAGB-BA have a
second crystal and a jumper over (I think!) OSC2?  If you, your PMAGB-BA
is running at an alternal screen resolution and/or refresh rate.
