The article says to check the website for information on the X resolution solution for the Appian Rushmore Quad-DVI PCI card, but it doesn't seem to be here... or maybe I missed it. I followed links for the video card as well as pogolinux, but couldn't find the information mentioned.

Any hints?

Maybe I missed it, but it looks like you put a kick-ass sound card on a box with no speakers. This is not too surprising as I doubt a box like this would be used as a desktop.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
