Subject: S3 graphics
From: Stephen Benson <stephenb AT scribendum DOT win-uk DOT net>

I have an 2/3 year old Orchid Fahrenheit 1280 with 1 MB and (I
think) a S3 86c911 chip. It's not an easy card but using TSRs etc I
(usually) survive. I'd like to get down to some graphics work in
dj's g++ but expect trouble... so, can anyone give me any pointers
on using the card with djgpp (what driver, besides vga.grd, to use
etc?, addressing peculiarities?, should I try to write a driver?)
Is there anything suitable in the GRX drivers zip? I want to try
out the SUIT, SIPP, LUG, SPHIGS packages too. Any words of warning
or sage advice? Thanks in advance.
