Manually setting a single mode is probably the easiest:
Viewport 0 0
That might be enough, or you might have to go to 1024x768. You could
limit the entries in the Monitor section to trick the card into picking
a single reasonable mode, like VertRefresh 70, or HorizSync 30-50.
(Assuming this is a CRT. If it's an LCD, use VertRefresh 60.)
Incidentally, Radeon 7000 cards are available in standard PCI for $20 or
so. Not a great card, but quite an upgrade over a Mach64, and supported
by a current driver.
