The ALI2101 does not work at all with a ALI2301. Following is a short cut=

of my XF86Config:

This works at least at my machine. Hope that helps.

With XFree86 v. 3.1.2 this card is supported. It is only in the SVGA
driver supported, but you can use a resulotion of 1024x768x256. You have
to define that chipset in your XF86Config file explicitly. I did it for
me and it works like a champ.

Hope that helps.
