[rescue] question on video cards for U10

What I meant was that the builtin adapter requires the sync-on-green
from a CRT display. I cannot get anything to display on the LCD from
that plug, only on the CRT, and that includes the OBP.

I was hoping that any standard PCI based adapter would work, however
having tried three older ones with no luck, I am about to give up.
This system is running FreeBSD and the cards I tried are very much
supported by BSD, so I'm not sure where the problem is.

Other folks also responded suggesting the SVR-100 card. Those are
great, except for the price. I'm on like a zero $ budget (2 kids,
mortgage) and I am trying to resurrect this U10 for a workstation for
myself. I have pieced the system together from other people's
throwaways so far.

I really appreciate the suggestions and help so far. I hope I can
either find a reasonably priced (~$20) card that will work, or figure
out how to get the existing cards I have laying about to work. Any and
all suggestions are welcome.
