At AmiWest it was claimed (and reaffirmed here on MorphZone
) that MorphOS can use a Radeon 9200 in a PCI slot of the X5000 without
removing the unsupported Radeon HD Southern Islands card from the primary PCIe slot. What's your opinion of this?
It's a matter of which card is scanned first.
It's not that you can't have two Radeon cards installed, BUT, if an unsupported Radeon card is detected first, then the OS is going to fail.
The Radeon 9200 solution just might work. And it would give you W3D support.
