Also also possibly any help - I used a VR241 monitor on an Amiga 500 for
years with a cable I knocked up out of a VAXstation monitor cable and a
23-pin clamshell which was almost unobtanium in those days, so if you have a
monitor that works with an A500 you stand a chance of getting it working
with other things.
