I think they're around that; I know that they have a 24bpp UPA (Creator3d)
driver that works.

It was the only reason I ever ran Linux on that box.  When NetBSD
arrives at the ability to do the FAS/HME (which I am given to understand
is making slow but steady progress) and the Creator3d (which oughtn't be
too difficult to pseudo-code from Linux and then hand off to another
coder to "clean-room"...), I'll be running that instead.
