I've found a listing by a vendor for the Matrox Millennium G200 (PCI), Is
that well supported?
You can also easily add a monochrome
(by the way, i'm not shure how to go MMIO only on the matrox. in fact, i'm
not even shure how to get libggi to use kgi as a target since i never seen a
libggi-kgi-target package ;)
>8bit card to multihead on any linux system. The kernel supports it
I thought that was just a text mode driver in fbcon. I've found that the
KGIcon hercules driver does not compile. does the standard fbcon mono
driver support graphics?

ok, i'll stay away from it. thanks.
as for my goals, my short term goal is to get multi-headed heritic working.
my long term goal is to get multi-player multi-headed heritic working (might
be waitin a while for this one ;)
(i guess geting hercules running with a VGA card in multi-headed graphics
mode is my instantanious goal, cause i want to get familiar with what the
commands are to do multi-headed :)
