I've got YDL CS 1.2 running on a real Frankenstein of a 7500 (XLR8 G3 350
w/1Meg backside cache, ATI Rage 128 VR, and an XLR8 USB card) and
everything was recognized and functioning without undue hassle.

The only weird thing is that YDL only has the G3 running at 195MHz rather
than the 350MHz that I have the dip switches on the card set to. I'm too
new to linux to be able to determine if thats an error or not.
