Hi,
I'm trying fine tune a Western Digital Paradise Bahamas 64 video card
w/2MB for X Windows. Does anyone use this card? I can't find any doc's
on it.

Thanks,
John

   Yup, I'm using this card on my Pentium 90.  You can run
Xconfigurator, choose the generic S3 Trio64 card, specify no RAMDAC (the
"recommended" choice), and it should work OK.  I have an xf86config file
which works OK (would work a lot better if I had a monitor with more
bandwidth) which I'd be happy to email you.  Don't know whether it would
work for you or not, but it's configured for a pretty generic, low-end
monitor so I'd guess it would be very unlikely to cause you any problems
if you've got a newer monitor.  Let me know.

1. Is a Paradise Bahamas 64 video card worth it?

I am considering buying a Paradise Bahamas 64 VL-Bus Graphics Accelerator Card
with 2 MB of Ram from Surplus Direct for $69. I would like anybody's opinion as
to whether this is a good card or not.  It seems pretty good but I want to also
know if anybody has had any problems with it or not. Accelerated X does support
it so I am okay in that department. Thanks in advance for any help you can
supply. Also if you have one please tell me about it and how substantial a
speed improvement it has given you. Ciao
