Well, seeing that I joined the list last week, no I haven't.;-)

I searched on the web, went to penguinppc.org, linuxppc.org, etc...nothing
popped up in front of my eyes though...

Yes, however for me it just complicated getting the PowerBook going as I was
not as familiar with the hardware and the configuration tools changed, these
are just coincidental, and not related to each other actually.

That I didn't know. (can run in text mode)

The top of the man page says:

xf86cfg - Graphical configuration tool for XFree86 4.0

I sent a message off to our hardware engineer and will get back to you if he
has any useful info on it. There should be some specs on it somewhere, even if
it's with the OEM that Apple gets the TFTs from. I'll let you know if I hear

Most of the Mac bigots I work will respond with, "why do you need to know
that, Mac OS doesn't need it, everything works fine...".
