Well, i've installed it in my pc (it is an pentium 3 coppermine, motherboard aopen and 380 mb ram). I've this problem: i can start my windows xp only in vga mode becouse if i start windows in normal mode, it don't start. After i've started windows in vga mode i try to change the monitor resolution and if i change the resolution(as 800*600, as 1024*768), windows crash and reboot automatically. Other thing: i seen vertically lines on monitor after the boot and before. I don't understand why video card  do this... But if i put voodoo 3 on pc with windows 7 beta, it go well... I don't understand... I know that this video card don't go with 32 bit colors. If i change monitor resolution with 8-16-32 bit, it also crash... I don't understand...
