Well I can't even get recognition that the card is on present the PCI bus.
So there is a time to give up and do something profitable.
That is now.

What does that mean? Does the card show up when you run "lspci" on Linux?

So, in case the nVidia card doesn't work, you might have more luck
with a Radeon device on Linux.

Is there a specific recommendation, or specification, since I'll be on Ebay
for a solution?  Beyond the obvious:
  - 5V.
  - 33MHz.
  - as recent as possible.

I don't have anything at hand at the moment. But I also wouldn't be giving
up on the nVidia board already. FWIW, I don't think we need to rely on
OpenFirmware to recognize the card. The kernel should be able to find it
once its running.

Well the installation went perfectly, and the package is installed.
But, SILO is still running the boot. There's no mention of GRUB
in any of the logs.

Not sure what I missed.
