I have one system here with 2D acceleration which has a problem with MTRR 
setup or something similar. The system is very slow when I boot it with the 
Radeon driver (any frame buffer writing in the app_server), but works fine 
when booting in VESA mode (accept the resolution of the screen is not in 
the list). So YMMV. But I would actually like to test some aspects of using 
a driver with acceleration, and I just realized that I still have an unused 
nVidia board that should be supported (though without video-overlay). Yeah, 
going to check that out. Still need to see how my double buffering with 
acceleration works out.

Best regards,
