    Well then, to make it clear to anyone who might be wondering about the boot menu question... You don't need a boot menu to run MorphOS on a PCIE G5 machine with an R500 graphics card with its original (x86) flash. Thus modifying the flash on an R500 graphics card would be pointless for running MorphOS.

    AND the Apple X1900GT is available which gives us an R500 based card capable of displaying Open firmware prompts.
    I have one, but would probably use a PC X1950XTX instead.

    If you want more power than the X1900GT you have to give up easy access to Open firmware, so I'll keep the X1900GT as a backup if I need to do that, and move up the ladder as our remarkable developers improve the drivers for the HD Radeon cards.
