No i386 machines around, cept for a laptop, and this card is rocksolid in MacOS using the beta14(?  I think drivers), and running as a simple fbdev device, it's just the accelerated X-server that seems to give it fits.....  I *think* the 3dfx MacOS drivers make for hardware acceleration, but I admit I am somewhat ignorant in that respect
