Glad it helped. I updated my copy of 2.4-benh, and it works now???!!!
So I'm really happy ;-)


Since I'm mirroring the LCD I only get 1024x768, and the pismo can
drive a 1600x1200 at 16 bit depth. So what needs to happen to aty128fb.c
to support the external monitor, and what can I do to make it happen??
