Dear LinuxBiosers,
                                I'm afraid this topic is a bit off 
topic, but I thought you guys would be the best to ask as LinuxBios 
doesn't load option roms. I have a Diamond Stealth 64 Dram PCI card 
which I have removed the option rom from (and placed in an antistatic 
foam eprom case.) I want to use it for dual monitor support, but had to 
remove the option rom as it wasn't designed for multi-card operation. I 
am wondering if this thing can be used with Linux's framebuffer 
support?? My other card is a Nvidia GeForce2 64MB AGP. I figure I may 
have to assign it some settings, I'm not sure. I haven't put it into the 
target machine yet, but I have tested it booting with a Cirrus Logic 
5422 w/ Option Rom on a different machine and it is detected by 95, but 
not used.

Thanking you in advance,

Lee Edward Causier.
