more pci-bus fun.

more pci-bus fun.

The strangest thing happened: Before I had a chance to remove the ethernet card from my system, I hear a strange sound coming from the built-in speaker and my video card stops displaying reds. GB ain't much fun without the R.

So after restarting, I realize that my monitor isn't getting a signal from the video card anymore... panic sets in. Luckily, I only had to put in the original Apple-blessed card and let Open Firmware reset itself (at least, I think that's what happened) to get a signal back. I doesn't look the 8500 was damaged but we'll see.

One of these days I'll stop messing with my hardware. Maybe one day I'll only have one computer.
