RE: powerstorm 300
Jay is right, it was an E&S chip. I think the RealImage 2100 if I
E&S was working with Metrolink and/or Xi graphics at one time for
commercial Linux drivers. I don't know the state of that effort. That
was also only for Intel platforms. But, you could try checking out
Metrolink and/or Xi, but I am doubtful you will find anything.
Personally, I wouldn't waste the time looking and would just go find a
Voodoo 3 or Radeon.
