Hi there.
Wel, I have an Oak brand video card with 512K memory.
This should display 640X480X256.  Are there any drivers for
this anywhere, at all?Also, what about 800X600X16 drivers?
Thanks- abny helop would be great.

1. 16 color drivers, 256 color full screen

Having finally installed 2.1GA I was hoping to be able to use my et4000 card
in 640x480x256 mode.  However, performance was severely lacking (386sx/16
prolly explains why).  

What I would like to be able to do, though, is use a full screen os/2 image
viewer (such as gif32).  Is it possible to have PM run in 16 color mode, and
still use a high res 256 color full screen mode?  

Currently gif32 just gives me a blank screen (if I delete the PMI file, it
works in 320x200 mode).  I believe gif32 uses the bvh[s]vga.dll.

If this CAN be done (that is, running the system is fewer colors than the
driver supports), what do I need to set up to do this?

Thanks for any pointers
