Yeah, I know that part. But will any of those cards (or any Radeon boards
for Mac) have an ADC port? The problem is, the system has a flatpanel
display - in this case, a 17" Apple Cinema Display LCD - and the nVidia
driver might work if not for that.
I have been in contact with Mark Vojkovich at nVidia, and he's going to
try to bug the right people to maybe get the info for programming nVidia
cards with DVI/ADC flatpanels, or at least make sure they know who's
interested in this info - in this case, not just Linux-on-Mac people, but
also FreeBSD people, since they also can't use nVidia's binary drivers. I
hope he has some success.
