I have a Radius monitor with the same set up, with the special
cable.  Oddly, on my grey G4 (w/Radeon Mac Edition PCI video)
I had to use a "normal" PC VGA cable with an adaptor to the monitor
to get it to work.  I say odd because I don't recall having to use
a "normal" VGA cable to use it with the last PC it was hooked up
to which had an ATI AGP video card in it.  Of course, it could just
be my faulty memory.
