oops! I hadn't realised

Ahh, that's definetly it then. Homa have none left, unfortunately, they
are attempting to get some more. Anyone here want to get rid of their
card <g> No. I didn't think so.

One thought... with the forthcoming release of the Milan, and no doubt
the availability of PCI (or ISA) graphics cards for them, someone must
be writing the VDI drivers for these. If that it the case, then AFAIK it
would not be too arduous to produce a PCI adaptor for the internal
expansion port, the difficulty lies in writing the driver.
