This is a board on the SGC bus, correct? What exact model? 425e?
(Dang, I always forget which was the quirky 400 system...)
Anyhow, there's currently no code to handle the SGC bus and no driver for
that framebuffer. One might be able to glean enough out of the Utah
PA-RISC Mach sources to write a BSD driver for that card, and possibly
cope with the SGC bus... (Mike?)
