Hi Michel,

Thank you for your answer. I don't have an idea anymore. Could you tell 
me which files we have to modify? Is it possible to port the AMD 
Catalyst driver to the PowerPC platform? If yes do you know how can I in 
touch with AMD? Please help us. We want to release new PowerPC desktop 
systems but without 3D acceleration it wouldn't be so nice.
