	The Supported PCI Hardware page indicates that the ZLXp-E2 is
supported.  Is this actually the case?  I'm not interested in X support,
just console support.

	I have an AS200 that came with a ZLXp-E2.  I took the card out 
before I put NetBSD on it, and I've been using a VT420 as the console.  
I just upgraded to the 970305 snapshot, and I thought I'd see if the 
frame buffer works.  Here's what happened:

[normal boot messages]
tga0 at pci0 dev 13 function 0
fatal kernel trap:

    trap entry 	= 0x2 (memory management fault)
    a0		= 0x0
    a1		= 0x1
    a2		= 0xffffffffffffffff
    pc		= 0x0
    ra		= 0xfffffc0000446088
    curproc	= 0xfffffc0000498558
	pid = 0, comm =

panic: trap

	I did notice that the Web page was updated 3/13.  Should I build
from newer sources and try again?
