[THIN] Re: A challenge!

Card access is handled by the VESA 1.0 interface. All the cards are
compliant as far as I know. I also get it with Cirris Logic cards, but =
only
the first time the client is run. I've ordered a few Savage 4 cards =
(only
=A310 each!) and will see how they get on.

I think he's using the DOS client; the NT prompt he's referring to is =
when
the client connects to the Citrix server.

Angus, do you know if the DOS client writes to the video card directly? =
 I
don't recally specifically, but I doubt there are DOS drivers for the =
video
card.  It's probably some wierdness with the S3 chipset  - something =
they
implement differently than the VGA standard.  It might just be that one =
S3
chipset, though - the never Savage4 cards may behave differently.  Have =
you
tried one of the newer cards, or shied away from them?
