You can find the SGI hardware documentation for the newport at
(it's also on oss.sgi.com somewhere but I found the official
SGI server intolerably slow.) I think this ought to be sufficient
to get 24 bit graphics on the newport working (assuming you have
a 24-bit newport and not the 8-bit only one, obviously :->).

Unfortunately the graphics card in my Indy is the XZ which
there's no docs of that I can find. Has anybody tried getting
more information out of SGI?
