    However, as since than passed much more than 'few months' I tgought he >abbandoned this project.. well, hope it WILL appear on Aminet soon :)

    It would be an incredible hack for sure (well, there's a nice justication :).
    Yeah.. but possible... (a bit hard, becasue the driver will use own copper stuff)
    Let's see if Laszlo (sp?) releases his driver and maybe I get enough bothered
    if it's cripple/shareware. ;)
    Hmm.. i do not know what will be the final state of the driver... but i
    think it will be FREEWARE...

    ps: a very early version of the driver is ready, and without MMU code it
    was about 2 times faster than AGA w. standard OS calls. (on 320x240
    8bit screen)
    (but the final version NEED 030/040/060 with WORKING MMU)
    And please do not ask about release date/similar.. when i finished it,
    i'll put to AmiNET...
