I actually don't know. I tried searching www.fcc.gov for it but no data. I tried reducing to what you suggested. The screen rapidly flashes from the command prompt to black. When I hit ctrl+alt+del I can see a message "getty repeating too quickly on port /dev/ttyv8, sleeping 30 secs". ?

How much RAM is on your S3 Trio64? Are you sure you are not trying to get a
resolution that your card has not enough RAM for?
Try reducing colours to 16-bit and screen resolution to 800x600 and test
