That's interesting because I'm able to run a TNT2 and Voodoo3 with either
one getting initialized during the boot up and the other getting
initialized by the server (currently, the Voodoo3 is the one getting
initialized by the server). However, both are PCI, so that might make a
PS. I've also had a SiS530 (AGP on the motherboard) initialize at boot up
and the Voodoo3 get initialized by the server w/p any problems.
