SGRAM SODIMMs were damn rare 10 years ago.   you're not going to find 
any today.

this is a server ?  who -cares- about the video card, yank it out, and 
stick something else in its place, like a old ATI Rage card.   google is 
telling me thats a pentium-II system, so it must be about 10 years 
old.   that or pull the disks out and get them working on another computer.

oh, its onboard video, ok, not going to replace it.

hey, amazing the power of the google.
