Nope... We've installed the latest version of the driver available from the
company (NetPower - the card is a NetPower UltraFX), which is specifically
intended for NT 4.0, and the thing still performs like a dog...

The most annoying thing about the video card is the fact that Solaris x86
doesn't like it - otherwise, I wouldn't be running NT on my machine
anymore... :)
