The UP2000 I have is the same as below, but the four PCI slots above the ISA 
slot are 32-bit, not 64. 

I'm perplexed as well. I've seen a few older postings at www.alphalinux.org 
that suggest ATI cards may take longer to be recognized by the firmware, but 
that doesn't seem to be the case here. I suppose that the firmware can 
recognize an ATI Rage Pro but not an ATI Rage 128-based video card? I realize 
that there must be support in the BIOS (for x86) or the firmware (for alpha) 
to use different PCI cards, so I suppose this API firmware for the UP2000, 
version 5.8-81 doesn't have support for the ATI Rage 128 yet.
