The answer is.... maybe. You will need to dump the rom of the cards in
question and ensure there is no ppc assembly in there. I discussed this
with Ani Joshi in regards to using a PCI Creator3D card in a Power Mac
and he said that although the card was OF it might have sparc assembly in
the rom.

I suggested sending creator pci cards to xfree/ppc people to get better
support for them since there is more active development on that side.
