I guess that would be a correct figure..

What I'd also like to get is a list of the cards (ID:s etc.). I think
it's possible to extend it with 3D hw and the like. A funny snippet of
information: in console mode (connected to a 9000/300) everytime the
screen scrolls or prints something the fb makes these weird, pretty
silent sounds. It sounds like it's powered by tiny hamsters in tiny workout

Anyway, I assume you have the interface card, right ? Could tell me
the model number of it so I could check if it matches the if-card that
I have. It's a shame to let this fine peace of hardware rot unused:)
