1. Help with Xfree86 and S3 (C805) Chip


I have an IBM PS/Valuepoint with built into t) video subsystem on the
motherboard.  The thing is I cannot getXFree86 to work in anthing else
than the VGA-16 mode.

When I use the SVGA or S# server 3t either hangs (in the S3)
or the SVGA serve says no proper mode found.

Please help me to get this thing working, I bought a 1.6GB,HD 20 MB
RAM, a CDROM, and an EDIDE controller just to get Linux up and running
(I plan to develop some C++/SQL/Web stuff) . If I have to I will buy
a new card (any reccomendations ?). My computer has one VLB slot.
