 Yes, root-owned processes can set themselves to a fixed priority and
 potentially disable most interrupts.  For more information, have your
 IBM rep search through InfoExplorer on his branch RS/6000 on the search
 words "setpri" and "getpri".

1. Real-time video on RS/6000

Can anyone tell me if there is any real-time video boards for
the RS/6000s?  I would like to capture video input from a TV
or camcorder and display the video on screen (under X Window?)
in real-time.  I would also like to send the video info over
the network (FDDI and/or Ethernet) to another RS/6000.

Thanks in advance.
