I am also a long-suffering PMS board owner, and it now DOES work with the
"invert palette" and "256 grays" settings of CU. The picture is 16 grays,
but at least it's not negative.

I recommend that you make sure that you have the NEWEST PMS driver (dated
6-2-94). If you got the board from Surplus Software, you have an older and
even more flawed driver.

I have had problems connecting to localhost (and yes, it is in my hosts
table); try connecting to yourself (your IP address).You can test this
without being on the internet if you have a hard-wire ethernet connection
and a TCP/IP stack loaded.
