The video board is an STB Nitro 3D and it is the only one in the machine. The
new motherboard is an ASUS PE5NP4, which does not have onboard video. I
essentially rescued the new MB from the junkpile, so when I got it, the BIOS
was in unknown shape - the first thing that I did to it was reset the it to
defaults. I just took the machine down to replace the SCSI controller
(swapped a 2940W for a 2940UW) and when I brought it back up, I checked the
BIOS and disabled the video BIOS shadow, which made no difference. I've also
tried booting into 2.0.33 instead of 2.1.10, which didn't help.
FWIW, the video is working just fine with svgalib and svgatextmode:
1024x768x16.7mil and 132x60x9, respectively. I'm about to wander off and load
NT on the other disk, which I'm sure will work fine as well.

While we're on the subject of my PCI bus, here's how I have it configured,
since this is a custom kernel:
