I know that feeling, so thanks for offering. Please take it easy :)

I did eye that, funny you say so. I found on some repository that 1.4.9 was considerably 'younger' than 1.9.100. I may (might) have a look at it tonight depending on when I may get outta here.

Oh, I had even less success with a radeon in an IBM box but that's admittedly before 7.4 and probably another story. I'll have another dig into my junk box but so far I only got PCI out of it (and the G200 has AGP, dunno if that makes *the* difference though ;-)).

Alright, then,

Thanks a lot, and

All the best,
