I believe (Mike will probably correct me) this is the model of display
card that eventually made it into the hp700's... There exists, somewhere,
apparently some hp700 Mach code that probably has code for that controller..
The hp300 port doesn't presently support that display controller. Though it
might make some people happy if it did.
