I have a 6400 with rage orion (128, 16 Mb RAM). XFree installed just fine,
but the accel. is not great. Peviously I had Debian (woody) installed -
with XFree 4.0.1, their version made fully use of the card (I could really
tell the difference)
It's in my belief that it's the drivers that need to be replaced. (I'll
try this soon and keep you all informed)
