I just tried that with 2.4.9, 2.4.11-pre and 2.4.13-pre... and all of them
screwed up my key mapping. I am using mac-usb-us for 2.2.19 and it works
fine. I'm using a 'macally' ext usb keyboard, by the way. Why does it
change when I go to the 2.4 kernels? How do I get around this?
By the way, once I figured out the keys for 'startx' I had more success.
My card apparently was found, but the setting were wrong because my monitor
compained. But it's progress none the less!
Thanks again for tips- Neil
