There is no Warp3D support for Radeon's under 3.9, so you would need to swap the GFX card like I used (yes a pain in the ass)

But I guarantee you wont stick with 4.1 as your main OS and you will use almost exclusively 3.9, the 4.1 experience is much nicer on Sam/A1, etc.

You'll just use occasionally for a quick click around

Yes this a work-around, you can in fact use a B/CVision and a PCI GPU, this works with OS4.1 for some reasonand can make a nice dual boot system, I've tested this myself with both A1200 and A4000 however, in the A1200 you have the issue of cooling the BVision which will be behind the PCI Busboard, I ran mine without cooling just for the tests and only for a few minutes!

But still, the Voodoo 3 is the better choice in 3.9, faster 3D and higher resolutions over the BVision.

I think FE is for all, but needs clarification from Hyperion.

I never heard of SCSI driver (assume you mean for BPPC) working on OS4.1 Classic.
