My two cgsix adapters seem to work fine under Linux/Sparc :-) On the
PC, I've always been led to believe that the hardware couldn't support
multiple VGA cards. You can have a VGA and an MDA card, though. Recently,
some manufacturers have been making cards that allow you to use more
than one simultaneously. The Matrox Millenium springs to mind (we have
2 or 3 in our PCs at work). I don't think you can mix and match with
other cards, though.
