Sorry, I guess I didn't express myself clearly. I do NOT use a
black-and-white (monochrome) monitor. I use a -grayscale- monitor. Lots and
lots of shades of gray. Lovely, crystal clear 3D graphics. No color
'ghosts'. No eyestrain. No headaches.

Grayscale monitors work with any video card that can deal with 256+ colors.
If you are using a video card that makes you specify b/w or color, you
have to set it for -color-; it won't work if you set the card for b/w. The
ones I played with (before I decided which monitor to buy) were mostly
attached to IBM clones or UNIX boxes and worked fine.

Again, sorry for the confusion.
