my attempts to get non-Mac PCI cards that were supported by XF86 4.x to
work have proven pretty fruitless so far. The cards I've played with are:
    - a generic ATI Mach 64
    - S3 Virge
    - generic S3 card

and I've tried the ati, vga, s3virge drivers (IIRC).

I haven't attempted any of this with XF86 4.0.2, only 4.0 and 4.0.1.

if you have any success, please let me know...
