I'm the happy owner of a SVGA-board called Enhanced-VGA (no manufacturer
name anywhere) using the ET-4000 chip with 1MB video memory. I've got
two questions I'd like to have answered, and this group seems to be my
best bet:

1 - Any problems with a 11MHz IO-clock? I've a 33MHz 386 and am
currently running the bus at 8.33 MHz, but 11 would be nice if I can be
sure not to burn out anything (rams on the card are 100ns, any problem
with them at 1024x768x256 and additional cycles for updating?). I have
seen posts claiming (well one post) that et4000 can go 11MHz according
to some manual - anything on this special board?

2 - The updated manual I've gotten has bios-programming information (set
mode etc), but is there any way I could get a hardware-level programming
guide (electronically and free :-). I've got FTP-access. Anybody?

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
