no luck with ATI Radeon 32 PCI and FlatPanel

Hi Ben,

The flatpanel works fine under MacOS9 but it will not even show the ybin
prompt which makes it hard to boot into linux  ;-)

Using the display registry on the MacOS side, the Radeon does in fact
provide all the the nice info we need:


ATY, RefCLK = 27000
ATY,MCLK = 166000
ATY,SCLK= 166000
width 1280
height 1024


Any ideas on how to boot this thing if the ybin prompt never even appears
on the screen (I tried blindly typing but no luck).

I will keep playing (probably in dual video mode) to try and make this
thing work.

I will let you know how it goes.
