hi jim,

first did you install the USB card, seem to remember you need this too.

but, it will only work as a graphics card when in hpux. you can change the system console path to the graphics card at BCH, but you wont actually see any output as it boots until it finally gets to CDE/Xwindows.

The rp3410 dosn't use the USB card it has standard USB ports that you are supposed to use. I went into SAM and tried to set the VGA card as defualt with still no luck :( Am I missing something?

Jim,

what slot is the card in?

it should be in either slot 1 or 2(the top two slots on the rp3410)

is the card seen at PDC in the io menu? or seen in unix with ioscan?
