So it isn't just me.  I was hoping it would just be a matter of tweaking a
thing or two 'cos I don't want to change an otherwise good video card/

Just for the record (in case Matt and I have both got it wrong) does
anyone have VNC on Linux with S3 Virge/4Mb viewing anything (W95, Linux,
Cambridge Uni coffee pot or whatever)  without the post-Armageddon

Or is this a question for Wez?
