it's simply not compatible with the 486/66 in the PDS slot. More 6100/DOS on LGR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UclHrIIaYA
btw. the 486 card has a real SB with a real OPL3 ! https://www.flickr.com/photos/94839221@N05/26 … 57665671196304/
to get an impression I made a (sorry for the bad image-quality) video of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39yxfxbqda8
(I also added linux/ppc on that machine lately)
You could always remove the DOS compatibility card and put a G3 or G4 accelerator card in there.
yes but not both at the same time and because the 6100 uses onboard-gfx shared with memory,
it's better to go with g3/g4 and hardware-acc-gfx. beside that it's a really good comparision because both systems have 66Mhz. You can easily compare PPC against X86. 😀 In short: it fits better if you like both os and do not have enough space for two machines...
