This is a modified OS/2 1.3 PM driver for OS/2 2.0 for people who has the ATI
8514/Ultra, Graphics Ultra or Graphics Vantage card.

A ring 0 device driver is included to allow non-standard 8514/A resolutions:
640x480 and 800x600. The ring 0 driver is OS/2 2.0 specific and will not
load under OS/2 1.3.

At 1024x768, it is recommended you use the 8514/A driver provided by OS/2 2.0.
The ATI driver at 1024x768 is slower and doesn't show the busy clock (hour
glass is shown).

To install, make a directory call C:\ATIPM (assuming C: is your boot
drive), and unpack all files into there. Then make the following changes
in your CONFIG.SYS:

Add: (at the beginning of CONFIG.SYS is fine)

SET ATI_RES=1024x768
DEVICE=C:\ATIPM\ATI0$.SYS
SET VIDEO_DEVICES=VIO_ATI_ULTRA
SET VIO_ATI_ULTRA=DEVICE(BVHVGA,BVH8514A)

Add the ATIPM path in your LIBPATH:

LIBPATH=.;C:\ATIPM;...

REM out:

REM SET VIDEO_DEVICES=VIO_8514A
REM SET VIO_8514A=DEVICE(BVHVGA,BVH8514A)

Keep:

SET VIO_VGA=DEVICE=(BVHSVGA) ; if VGA portion is SuperVGA
or
SET VIO_VGA=DEVICE=(BVHVGA) ; if VGA portion is regular VGA

DEVINFO=SCR,BGA,C:\OS2\VIOTBL.DCP


Also make sure the V8514A.SYS is loaded. ie:
DEVICE=G:\OS2\MDOS\VSVGA.SYS ; use VVGA.SYS if this is regular VGA passthru'
DEVICE=G:\OS2\MDOS\V8514A.SYS


You can select other resolutions by changing ATI_RES=800x600 or
ATI_RES=640x480.


Reboot system for the changes to take into effect.

If you're using SuperVGA (the VGA on Graphics Ultra/Vantage is SVGA), make
sure you run SVGA ON in a DOS full-screen after rebooting.


Happy OS/2ing...Albert
