IIRC, AMIX will run without the Lowell graphics card, but only in black and
white. For a colour X-display, you need the Lowell card, which is about as
hard to find as the AMIX tapes and tape drive. I was interested in
acquiring Amix a while back, and posted a "WTB" to comp.sys.amiga.unix; I
got several replies, so there are copies out there.
