Yes I have a chip programmator. I don't understand if it's possible tu use
the source of v1 en test it directly (on the web for the v1 it are noted
like nonfunctional), or if I must modify the files to function with the v2
For me if the VGA, the USB, and the network (rtl8139c) work it's sufficient.

Thank's by advance for your help,
