I want to run my Rage 128VR in the 66Mhz PCI slot, and the stock rage 128 in a regular PCI slot, but machine will not boot. The stock card has hardware DVD Decoder. Any recommendations on how to make this run.

THe Rage 128 VR card will run by itself in the 66Mhz slot. But not whe I put the stock 128 in slot 1. I get no boot.

I had that exact same setup at one time and I used the stock card in slot 3 and it worked fine

One thing: Di you have dual monitors or are you leaving the unused card empty? You may need to put a monitor adapter on the unused VGA port to fool the Mac into thinking there is a monitor there before you can boot

I finally had time to move stock card to 3rd slot, and all is well. I am using 2 monitors. THe Rage128VR has the larger heatsink and SHow a later revision of the 128 CHip so it seems to be faster.
