I literally just swapped a leo back into my SS10 two days ago.  It
worked fine with console and X earlier with Woody and now with Sarge
(XFree86 4.2 I believe).

XF86Config-4 settings = 32 bits per pixel, 1280x1024 res.

Perhaps the anti-leo+10'ers are concerned about heat.  I don't run my
box for extended periods.  No heat-related problems -- it's very
reliable in general.  I put the leo in the upper SBUS slots, and I have
a network card below them.  Two SM51 CPU cards.  (Aside: This box is
very responsive under X with the leo.)

I think I'm using kernel 2.2.19 SMP.  The kernel's framebuffer support
drives the leo too, i.e. I see two penguins when booting.  No special
args to silo.

Do you see a Penguin?  Then your kernel is ok.
