How can you use such a large image with hardware texture
mapping? According to my calculator, the image you mentioned
above is already 222 MB (if it's 4 bytes per pixel)... do
you have such a lot of texture RAM?

I have a nice image of the earth at 1 km per pixel resolution
here (43200 x 21600), 2.6 Gigs or so... but I doubt there's
any consumer graphics card that has this amount of RAM :)
