Hey Mike,

What kind of machine is this?  I tried to use a quad video card for display 
(Appian Rushmores) in a Dell PowerEdge 6600 multiprocessor machine, and 
even though it had lots of slots for PCI cards, it wouldn't support 
multiple video cards, the slots are intended for storage devices, not 
video.  I talked to both Dell and to Microsoft (it was running Windows 
server 2000) and they both said that use wasn't supported.....I didn't even 
get to the video input cards....but it had a nice architecture that I 
thought perfect for AG use (one bus for every two PCI slots, fast memory, 
it was a beast!!!)
Maybe the video is supported now with the newer OS and machines......
