how to use XF3.1 server with XF2.1.1

hi all,

this has been mentioned before (a while ago), but i would like to ask it again.
i am using xf86 2.1.1 that was installed with slackware.  i am interested in
using the 24bpp server as opposed to the 256 color server that comes with
2.1.1.  can i just pop the server in there and, of course, create a XF86Config
as opposed to Xconfig.  will this work?  i don't want to get the whole XF86 3.1
because all of my apps are compiled for 2.1.1.  all i have is a 14.4 modem, and
the infomagic cd.  are these all i need?  i have a stb vl-24 (s3805) card with
the att_2c490_1 option set.

thanks,
keith grider

This doesn't answer the question you are asking, but you can't do 24bpp with
that card (or any 801/805 card) with XFree86.  16bpp will work though.
