 I ran across some of these hacks when searching for info but ISTR they were
for connecting a 3 BNC connector to VGA. My NEC Multi 4Ds is lovely that way in
that it has the 5 BNC connectors as well as both the PC and Mac 15-pin VGA

 Well if turns out that the ATI card works with it ,I might try making a Linux
box with my 8580. Some of the people on the PS2 newsgroup have done a Linux
install on MCA and I know at least one site dedicated to it.
