RE: TNT2 and Potato XF86 3.3
Bummer, maybe my previous soundcard was really bad and i was too impressed
I'm experiencing the same thing here with ATi based video cards, once they
are attached to a KVM the pictur quality gets ugly. According to the
manufacturer this should not happen and so on ... nothing you can do about
it if the combination don't mix. Good to hear it might be videocard based.

upgraded his machine to a GeForce2, and gave me the TNT2. It's the same
model as what's in my other machine. I see no reason why the new card would
I've been a fan of Matrox for 2D ever since the Millenium. (In fact, there's
one of those in another machine here...) I was amazed at the relatively poor
image quality the G200 provides.
