Just for information, why do you consider sungem better than gmac ? What
kind of functionnalities is it supposed to better handle than gmac ?

Also about the video cards, there is two options :

- ATI Radeon 7500 (32 Mo)
- NVIDIA GeForce4 MX (64 Mo of RAM)

Is there any clue about the support of each one ?

For information, I have used NVidia cards under intel linux boxes and it
is very boring having to get the driver from Nvidia and to patch the
kernel and the XFree with their driver. Also I don't think they produce a
driver for ppc linux.
