I've had no problems with a Millennium II + Voodoo1 in my K6/233 rig. I, too, use CF cards and swap between DOS 7.1 + WfW 3.11, Win95c, and OS/2 Warp 4.52. I started with a Virge/GX + Voodoo1 but switched because I did get some screen corruption in OS/2 when opening a full screen command prompt. I use Win98 in a Sempron 2GHz rig with a 256MB PCI Radeon 9250.

Regarding games that use their built in UNIVBE support.

UNIVBE support depends on the BIOS. A lot of people have had problems with varies types of TNT2 cards (including the normal version) and UNIVBE.

There is a modified UNIVBE driver that tries to fix the issue by using the video cards BIOS but I have not tested it.

Best is just to use cards that are older, maybe 1997-1998 at the latest.
