Sorry, I guess I am not clear enough, with the 7500 plugged into a PCI slot, I get No Video out of the 7500.  With a CTX1765 monitor on my AS 250, I get nothing, the monitor stays in sleep mode, plugged into the 164LX, same board, I get the green monitor lite but no video - and both cases are at boot time, I have the boxes set to prompt me for boot, If I can get as far as having to choos which Xserver to use, I will be most happy!! Right now I am still scratching my head, S3 and other generic pci cards give me the boot screen, but not this 7500...mumble grumble...
