Sort of (and my Amiga might arrive tomorrow, next I need is a phone line, a
monitor and a PC at home, plus a transformator). Oh and of course a desk to

Hmm, Rage 128 Pro PR and an LCD display. Shouldn't be difficult, should it?
Didn't work i the first try (I wanted to buy a Rage 128 for my new home
