Thanks, I'll have to go in search of that driver again, and see what 
it tells me about how to modify our driver. See, I have this SS20 
with an 8MB VSIMM in it for the SX (cg14) graphics subsystem, and a 
20" GDM-20E10 to drive at 1280x1024x24bpp...

I did try turning on the ifdefs for "cgeight" emulation in the NetBSD 
cg14 driver; as advertised in the comments, it does not work in its 
current incarnation.
