At the end of this week and next I'm going to start work on bringing up 
our new system that has ATI video chips.  The ADLO solution that worked 
for the Assiliant 68030's hangs on with the ATI bios.

So it looks like a good time to stop using ADLO and move to vgabios and 
see if I can make it work.  Currently I don't have the liberty of moving 
to freebios2 tree as I'd have to rewrite all the memory init stuff.

Can some kind soul give me or point me to info on what the current 
status is and what I going to need to do to get it all up?
