I have a line on one of these machine, sans video card. Can I take a
standard PC video card and slap it in there and have it work?
By work, I mean the following: will the BIOS ignore the thing until
it is booted (via a serial console, say), when the OS can then take
over and dittle the video card in a standard way. A $35 ISA card is a
whole lot cheaper than the $315 Carrara one, no?
Or am I dreaming?
