This is only a little OT because the PowerBook in question is my most
reliable point of connection for the Newt. And it's sick.

On start up, it goes through the normal routine in every way, including
the OS X splash screen with the progress bar. Then the screen goes
blue and stays blue. Sometimes, I've got the right side of the menu
bar, with the clock and the spotlight button, but that's it, and
clicking on them doesn't show the drop down.

Other than this, things seem to be working right... it will shut down
normally if I hit the power button and then return.

Have tried with external monitor - same thing.

Is this the video card?
