    I think MorphOS doesn't try to initialize Voodoo3 when it's plugged in Prometheus.

    Doesn't the Voodoo3 require ix86-bios-style initialisation? I assume there is a dummy initialisation routine to carry this out under G-rex, therefore perhaps it is just that this routine is specifically programmed for the G-rex.
    If this is the case, could we re-write this for the Prometheus relatively easily?

    We could use Krashan's input here to determine what the problem is - perhaps it would be relatively easy to fix, and it is just down to devs not having access to the hardware to be able to test possible solutions.
