I tried to search for this, but didn't find anything. Does anyone know if it is possible to drop a standard PC 6800 Ultra video card into a Power Mac? (It's a Verto 6800 Ultra if that matters, but it's just the standard reference design)

Mac open firmware requires unique info to be present in the ROM on the card to work. That means only a Mac version or a firmware flashed PC version will work. Out of the box PC version WILL NOT WORK!

Bummer. Anyone happen to know how to flash the firmware on a 6800 ultra? Google is failing me.
