Intel(R) 82865G graphics controller

Dac type- internal

I think for Mach we need a non integrated card, right?

onboard or AGP?  I'm not sure

It is certainly recommended that you use a non integrated video card. Some work fine, some dont.

Every thing works very well, except this drift problem.  Could the vid card be the problem?

Thank you for sticking with the newb, and his dumb Qs

Suppose its possible but not convinced myself especially if the motors sound good and I think you said the distance is very repeatable..

about 3/8" on the Y, and about 1/4" on the Z, running at 200 ipm for 5 min,  with both changing direction quite a few times.  I am trying to cut parts for rc model airplanes.

Try this, decrease your accel and velocity on one of the troubled axis to 25% of what it is now. Run the same file before and after this adjusment and let us know if the error is the same amount. As far as your steps per being right, do the math to get to that if you can. That will eliminate a lot of guessing, If you measure it your assuming you have not skipped any steps and often backlash isn't accounted for (depending on how you have been measuring).
