Yeah.  The Cirrus cards seem to be what motorola chose.  The ones I mentioned
were all from motorola boxes.

I was just looking at the IBM adapters book for the Matrox and S3 add-in vga
cards.  In both cards, IBM claims the cards can only do 8-bit color.  It's
possible they put a wierd dac on them.  You aren't trying to run them at 16 or
24 bit are you?
