  Thanks Rich, much appreciated! About the code, I'm the same way, I
  don't know a thing about it. I've used the patch extensively, but
  that's hardly a guarantee of its safety/desirability in all

  As for video cards, this thing's an old Trident TGUI 9440, 1MB of
  video RAM, and I don't think it supports anything! <g> I'll hopefully
  run into a better one someday, the framebuffer would sure be nice.
