First off, the Accelgraphics card should work for text-mode console, as
there's a dumb VGA on the board, IIRC.

Second, there is no XFree86 nor commercial server for it under LINUX, again

Third, the XL MILO from RH 4.2 is *really* old; try using the one from
5.2. And yes, you could still install 4.2 if you have only that CD, it
should be OK to use that MILO with those older kernels, I think...
