I have to amend my previous positive remarks about the radeon 9200SE, it
starts getting to forget to give proper video now, after the first two weeks
no problems , but it tends to give blank screen after initial bios boot now, 
then  when the system has started and I do startx on the blind I have video 
again, as if the 9200SE doesn't want to be involved was a mere vga 
resolution. This is the S2875 board (the cheap version of the S2885).
