Is your Sawtooth fairly new? The newest Sawtooths have the Rage 128 Pro
video card which doesn't have full support in the shipping kernel.
Today I'm working on our standardized errata system and once I'm
done we'll get some updates out. (for the Rage 128 Pro cards, Pismo, and a
few other little items).

Also, please send me your support ID in private email and I'll check into
your support problem.
