Are you sure ?? I bought a card with a Trio64V+, supposedly the same as 765,
which I planned to use with my new PC164, but haven't tried it yet. I
believe I've seen mentions on this list of a Trio64+ (without V) working. Is
this different from the Trio64V+ ??
If it will not work on Alpha, will it work on Intel ? (In which case I could
just swap cards)
