Bad news. How about this UGA thingy? No support on this end too? :/

Well, maybe it was a bit too soon to ask this question any way. No  
one here knows how the Intel Macs EFI will be programmed - maybe it  
includes a BIOS/VESA compatibility layer (as sometimes rumored).

Hope dies last, my iMac is ordered ;)
