Please see my previous post. I suspect that the card is one of the later
non supported chip sets. It looks like it uses 2 busids one for the main
card and the 2nd for the some of the memory - probably a fudge to get
the memory up to 128Meg. I this that this is confusing the RADEON
I can't afford the time to mess about with it any further time for a new
card I think.
