Video Settings?

What is the maximum colors and desktop size using the onboard video controller? Also, what is the best way to install a different [PCI] video card.

Thank you very much,
J Hall

Re: Video Settings?

This is a 512KB video cache. The highest you can go is 800X600 256 colour.
For a video card:
Please make sure the card is not installed before doing this.
Go into the F10 partition and choose System Config -> Config HW -> Review and Modify -> Add/Remove Boards. From there please make sure you add in all the info you can. It will also ask you for the slot number. We want to make sure it's on the primary bus. Slots 5-8. After this is done. Save and exit. Shut down the Server and install the Video card in the slot you have chosen. Also on the system board there will be a bank of switches (SW1) a total of 6. Please turn #1 off. This will disable the on-board video. Please make sure the BIOS is up to the latest.
Also there are no promises that this will work.
We are here for a good time, not a long time!
