than anything else... I'm considering a SVGA card for the colours rather
than speed... My standard VGA system runs fine with OS/2. Anyway...
I'm in a similar position, except that I use planar VGA on my PS/2.
Does anyone have a program or driver that disables the planar VGA
and enables a SVGA card? (I think this is possible with two pokes
to memory; I helped a guy with the research some time back but
never found out if it actually worked).
Ok; and what is a hot card, not just for OS/2, but for DOS/Windows
too? I'm looking for something that can do 256 colours upto good
resolutions and hopefully even 24 bit true colour. Since my
Windows already flies on my bare bones VGA 386sx/20 I don't see
the need for a windows accelerator. I've a standard PC AT bus
(lets get that straight; only high end PS/2s are microchannel),
so I can't use local bus stuff.
Finally; I want something cheap. Cheaper the better!
