To answer my own questoin, the X4.x supports the twister video card with the
Savage driver on the xserver. The only mode I couldn't configure was
640/480, where the mouse doesn't want to line up with the page (odd). I
haven't tested the 24bit yet either, but I'll try it after I finish the rest
of my installation. Is this fun?
I would still like to learn the full parameters of the LCD display. Guess it
is time to start pounding on Gateways support center.
THanks all, sri for bugging the list!
