Hi Bob,
What X Server are you using? I use a TGA card on my AlphaStation 200, 
so I use the XDecNetBSD. Since you mentioned plugging in a TGA & 
having it work, I'll guess that you're using either XDecNetBSD or 
XAlphaNetBSD (older name, dunno which 1.6.1 uses). I'm not sure what 
VGA-style cards are supported under that X Server, so that may be the 
issue. You would have a much better range of options & cards 
available if you used the XFree86 X Server.

Just a thought,
