Should I even consider trying ? Does someone already tried it ?

Yes Blizzard + GREX + Voodoo works. Any version of the GREX is fine, fixed or unfixed. Voodoo 3 and RTL8029 are the *ONLY* cards that will work, though. Believe me we tried to get other cards to work (such as sound cards) but it just didn't work properly even though we setup the PCI card correctly. There must be some funkiness going on and undocumented stuff unfortunately. So use a Voodoo 3 and RTL8029 in a GREX setup and use Paula for sound.
