Wohoo! mozilla last night (I have a working build!) Xfree 3.9 today!
Sorry bout the excitability - the number of Linux-not-PPC packages was 
beginning to concern me, but they're getting fixed in droves.

Presumably, then, this works only on Rage 128? I've still got a Rage II+ :-*. 
Or is it just not accelerated much (or at all) then? I'm probably not going to 
switch (unless you want a tested with an older machine, Beige G3 Rev1 
Desktop), but I'm curious about the support for somewhat older video cards.
