        I also recently got a Radeon (PCI version) and its DVI port is
connected directly to a Samsung flat panel.  It just works (both the
radeon kernel driver and XFree86 driver from Ani).  Did I get lucky?
(Maybe because I have an Old World machine and use BootX so MacOS may
have set things up?)  Anyway, if I can help in some way to test/dump
things, please let me know.
