ESIX Rev C does NOT work with a Hercules adapter. So your only options
are EGA and VGA, With VGA going from 640x480 to 1024 x 768 depending
on which VGA card you use.

As of Rev. C We support The Logitech Bus mouse, Logitech Serial mouse,
and the Microsoft Bus mouse. The Serial mouse is still only for tty00 and
tty01. The Bus mouse is supported at ant free interupt usable by the bus

We have not test the ATI card, but customers have said that both the
mouse port works and it displays at 640x480. I know we have planed to
work on a driver for this card but as of now we do not have the tech info
or a eval version for this card.
