    For a Voodoo card to work, you'll need a game that can use it.
    Games like Unreal (the original) can use it in 3Dfx mode. Even some OpenGL games (Quake 1,2) can work too.
    What's even more fun, is an early version of Virtual PC (version 2 ?), which can access the Voodoo 2 add-on card on PC games! I have never tried it, but it should work.

    BTW, isn't the 5400 an all-in-one Mac? That could mean you'll be needing a second monitor to attach to the Voodoo 2. I thought the Voodoo 2 was 3D only, or not?
