Take a look at: http://www.netneurotic.de/mac/openfirmware.html
and try if you can set OF to use your card. I used BootVars under MacOS
to set my Voodoo3 to output-device /bandit/3Dfx,Voodoo3
and keyboard to input-device kbd. Maybe it does over serial too. Then
reboot and hope that it works. When you boot back into MacOS OF gets erased
Also look at www.netbsd.org there are a lot of infos about OpenFirmware, in
the install manual and the macppc-faq.
Hope this helps by Chris.
